I cross the magpie

I cross the magpie
The magpie crosses me,
Bad luck to the magpie
And good luck to me.

Magpie, magpie

Magpie, magpie, chatter and flee,
Turn up thy tail, and good luck to me.
One for sorrow, two for joy,
Three for a girl, four for a boy,
Five for silver, six for gold,
Seven for a secret, never to be told,
Eight for a wish, nine for a kiss,
Ten for a time of joyous bliss.

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.
