"Ten Green Bottles" is a song that is popular in the United Kingdom. In essence, the song is a single verse repeated, each time with one bottle fewer:

10 green bottles sitting on the wall,
10 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 9 green bottles hanging on the wall.
9 green bottles hanging on the wall,
9 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 8 green bottles hanging on the wall.
8 green bottles hanging on the wall,
8 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 7 green bottles hanging on the wall.
7 green bottles hanging on the wall,
7 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 6 green bottles hanging on the wall.
6 green bottles hanging on the wall,
6 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 5 green bottles hanging on the wall.
5 green bottles hanging on the wall,
5 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall
There'll be 4 green bottles hanging on the wall.
4 green bottles hanging on the wall,
4 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 3 green bottles hanging on the wall.
3 green bottles hanging on the wall,
3 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 2 green bottles hanging on the wall.
2 green bottles hanging on the wall,
2 green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should accidentally fall,
There'll be 1 green bottle hanging on the wall.
1 green bottle hanging on the wall,
1 green bottle hanging on the wall,
And it that green bottle should accidentally fall
There'll be no more bottles hanging on the wall.
