The most common version of this song has just the first two verses, but this video has an extra verse:

Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
We’ll all have tea.

Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
They’ve all gone away.

Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
We’ll all have tea.

Blow the fire and make the toast,
Put the muffins on to roast,
Blow the fire and make the toast,
We’ll all have tea.

Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
We’ll all have tea.

Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
They’ve all gone away.
