From Storytime

Try this rhyme at home: 
   There were 10 in the bed 
   And the Little One said: "Roll Over, Roll Over" 
   So they all rolled over and 1 fell out. 
   There were 9 in the bed
   And the Little One said... 
   Continue until... There was 1 in the bed 
   And the Little One said: "Good Night!"
