Two little blackbirds
Sitting on the wall,
One named Peter,
One named Paul.*
Fly away Peter,
Fly away Paul.
Come back Peter,
Come back Paul.
*Or "The other named Paul."
Here's a variation of this rhyme from The Little Mother Goose (1912):
There Were Two Blackbirds Sitting on a Hill
There were two blackbirds sitting on a hill,
One named Jack and the other named Jill.
Fly away, Jack, fly away, Jill.
Come again, Jack, come again, Jill.
