As sung by the undead marching drummer boy thief.

I don't know what came over me.




One two three four,
Knock upon my ladies door,
See a comb upon the floor.
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the bakers door,
See his bread upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the butchers door,
See a side upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the merchants door,
See his chair upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the nobles door,
See his crown upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the guardsmans door,
See his club upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the goalers door,
See his chains upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the judges door,
See his gavel upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

One two three four,
Knock upon the headsmans door,
See our head upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
They put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.




Variation:

One two three four,
Knock upon the wiffles door,
What do we see upon the floor?
See a foo upon the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
We put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

Also add as many verses as you can think of for the various tradesmen,add any particular people that you dislike - some versions take qualities (that ambiguously might be real objects)  For example:

One two three four,
Knock upon the lovers door,
Take his vanity from the floor
A tisket, A tasket -
They put it in the basket.
Rat a tat tat, parrap ta tat.

And then, if you don't want to start all over form the beginning, you can start the journey into hell:
Knock upon the boatsmans door / We see two coins upon the floor...

Infinite fun for all the family.  Repeat until someone puts the drum into the basket.
You're very strange. But it works :) - SunKitten
