Seven are the gates of hell
Seven are the days of the week
Seven wise men of Greece
Seven the seas that cover the earth
Seven the planets, and seven
The wonders of the world

One for sorrow

One for sorrow,
Two for mirth,
Three for a wedding,
Four for birth,
Five for rich,
Six for poor,
Seven for a witch,
I can tell you no more.
