DECEM URNAE

(Ten green bottles)

decem urnae pendent ex muro,
decem urnae pendent ex muro,
si forte urna cadit ad terram,
iam pendent novem urnae ex muro

novem urnae pendent ex muro ..

octo urnae pendent ex muro ..

una urna pendet ex muro
una urna pendet ex muro
si forte urna cadit ad terram.
iam pendet nulla urna ex muro.

TRES MURES

(Three Blind Mice - although the Latin ones aren't blind!)

tres mures! tres mures!
ecce currunt! ecce currunt!
sequuntur agricolae feminam
caudas ea desecuit cultro
mirabile spectaculum visu
trium murium!

PARVA CASA IN SILVA

(In a cottage in a wood)

parva casa in silva
senex stat ad fenestram
videt cuniculum qui currit
et pulsat ianuam!
'iuva iuva iuva me!
venator vult me necare!'
'veni mecum cunicule,
erimus felices.'

ARDET ROMA

(London's burning)

ardet Roma! ardet Roma!
vigiles, O vigilate!
en! en! flammae!
aquam ferte! aquam ferte!

NAM COMES EST IUCUNDUS

(For he's a jolly good fellow)

nam comes est iucundus,
nam comes est iucundus
nam comes est iucundus,
sic omnes dicimus
