Oranges and Lemons Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Oranges and Lemons” is a nursery rhyme and one of the most popular singing games. The text cites several churches of London. They were supposed to talk to each other through their bells! The first of them, St. Clement, could be referring to the church of St. Clement Danes or St. Clement Eastcheap, close to which there is a market of citrus fruits. The bells of St. Clement Danes are today tuned to the melody of the rhyme.

The last stanza appears for the first time in James Orchard Halliwell’s collection of English Nursery Rhymes, in 1840’s, while in earlier versions it was absent.

Lyrics

1. Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of St. Clement’s.
You owe me five farthings,
Say the bells of St. Martin’s.

2. When will you pay me?
Say the bells of Old Bailey.
When I grow rich,
Say the bells of Shoreditch.

3. When will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.
I do not know,
Says the great bell of Bow.

4. Here comes a candle
to light you to bed.
And here comes a chopper
to chop off your head!
