The Wish Bone

Wishbone, wishbone,
On a dish
Pick it up and make a wish.
If I pull the wishbone right
I will get my wish tonight.
Wishbone, wishbone,
Will I win?
Will I laugh and clap and grin?
When the wishbone snaps in two,
Will my wishbone wish come true?
Wishbone, wishbone,
Now it snaps,
My sister grins and laughs and claps.
Wishbone, wishbone,
I don’t laugh,
My sister got the bigger half.
