Hot Cross Buns Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Hot Cross Buns” is an English Easter song and nursery rhyme, probably as old as those spiced buns, “crossed” at the top according to the song. Street sellers of the 19th century shouted loudly to invite people to buy some, so the song probably imitates their cry. The song was first published in the “Christmas Box” London, 1798 and it has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 13029.

The “Hot Cross Buns” are traditional sweets, eaten on Good Friday. They contain, apart from spices, pieces of fruits and raisins. You can sing the song while preparing some! – we’re sure that they will be more delicious! Find the recipe here.

Lyrics (version 1)

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns!

If you have no daughters,
give them to your sons.
One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns!

Lyrics (version 2)

Hot cross buns,
Hot cross buns,
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

If you have no daughters,
If you have no sons,
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

If your sons don’t like them,
They’re the only ones,
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

I don’t tell jokes
and I don’t tell puns,
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

Get them while they’re hot
and eat them by the ton,
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

Lyrics (version 3)

Hot cross buns, hot cross buns
One a penny, Two a penny, hot cross buns

If you have no daughters
If you have no daughters
If you have no daughters
Give them to your sons

But if you have none of these little elves
You will have to eat them all yourselves

Hot cross buns, hot cross buns
One a penny, Two a penny, hot cross buns

If you have no daughters
If you have no daughters
If you have no daughters
Give them to your sons

But if you have none of these little elves
You will have to eat them all yourselves

Hot cross buns, hot cross buns
One a penny, Two a penny, hot cross buns
