One by one until there are none.
Ten Little Princesses taking sips of wine,
One drunk herself to sleep and then there were nine.

Nine little Princesses learning how to skate,
One tripped into the water and then there were eight.

Eight little Princesses praying up to heaven,
A Guardian went and took one and then there were seven.

Seven little Princesses showing off new tricks,
One felt ashamed and ran away and then there were six.

Six little Princesses looking for a chive,
One ate a nasty mushroom and then there were five.

Five little Princesses wandering ‘round the moor,
One walked herself off a cliff and then there were four.

Four little Princesses climbing up a tree,
One pushed her friend off a branch and then there were three.

Three little Princesses cooking up a stew,
One burned herself with fire and then there were two.

Two little Princesses going on a run,
One sprained her ankle and then there was one.

One little Princess ready to be done,
She dug her own grave and then there were none.
