# As I was going to St Ives

year 1730 origin England

# Lyrics

As I was going to St. Ives,
Upon the road I met seven wives;
Every wife had seven sacks,
Every sack had seven cats,
Every cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were going to St. Ives?

Answer: only one is going to St Ives—the narrator. All of the others are coming from St Ives
