Mentre andavo a St Ives

< As I was going to St Ives

Mentre stavo andando a St. Ives incontrai un uomo con 7 mogli.
Ciascuna moglie aveva 7 sacchi,
ciascun sacco conteneva 7 cats,
ogni gatto aveva 7 kittens.
Kittens, cats, sacchi e mogli, in quanti stavano andando a St. Ives?

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?
