What is the last line of the St. Clement's church song? I heard some children singing on the train and am unaware if it was the St. Clement song

It's always possible for popular songs to shift lines a bit, but the last line given in the book is "Here comes the chopper to chop off your head."

The name of the song is Oranges and Lemons and the last verse of the song is "And here comes a chopper to chop off your head". This songs serves as a reminder that the society had completely eradicated shared culture from the people and foreshadowing the point of time where the characters in the book are found isolated from the world, the agony of the whole matter troubling their lives.
