For the Vivian Jeanette Kaplan novel, see Ten Green Bottles (book).

"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 thoughtfully arranged on the wall,
10 green bottles thoughtfully arranged on the wall,
And if 1 green bottle should by means of thoughtless arrangement fall,
There'll be 9 green bottles thoughtfully arranged on the wall.

This pattern continues until the number of bottles reach zero.
