How did the Little Indian Boy song go, in And Then There Were None?Please say the whole thing.
Check the beginning of the book ---- before chapter one. It is a poem that has been around for some time.
Ten little Indian boys went out to dine:
One choked his little self, and then there were Nine.
Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
One overslept himself, and then there were Eight.
Eight little Indian boys traveling in Devon;
One said he stay there and then there were Seven.
Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks;
One chopped himself in halves and then there were Six.
Six little Indian boys playing in a hive;
A bumble bee stung one and then there were Five.
Five little Indian boys going in for law;
One got into Chancery and then there were Four.
Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
A red herring swallowed one and then there were Three.
Three little Indian boys walking inthe Zoo;
A big bear hugged one and then there were Two.
Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun;
One got frizzled up and then there was One.
One little Indian boy left all alone;
He went and hanged himself
And then there were None.
Because the word Indian became politically sensitive, some versions, such as the one in your book, use the word Soldier
