Minstrel song[ edit ] Songwriter Septimus Winner created an elaborated version of the children's song, called "Ten Little Injuns", in for a minstrel show.
Ten little Injuns standin' in a line, One toddled home and then there were nine; Nine little Injuns swingin' on a gate, One tumbled off and then there were eight.
Eight little Injuns gayest under heav'n. One went to sleep and then there were seven; Seven little Injuns cuttin' up their tricks, One broke his neck and then there were six.
Six little Injuns all alive, One kicked the bucket and then there were five; Five little Injuns on a cellar door, One tumbled in and then there were four. Four little Injuns up on a spree, One got fuddled and then there were three; Three little Injuns out on a canoe, One tumbled overboard and then there were two Two little Injuns foolin' with a gun, One shot t'other and then there was one; One little Injun livin' all alone, He got married and then there were none.

Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves and then there were six. Six little Indian boys playing with a hive ; A bumblebee stung one of them and then there were five. Five little Indian boys going in for law; One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four little Indian boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then there were three. Three little Indian boys walking in the zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were two. Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun; One got all frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none. They perform a catchy dance which inspires the other nursery rhyme characters to join in. In the Sherlock Holmes film A Study in Scarletsuccessive lines of the poem which replaces "Indians" with "black boys" are found left by the murderer with each new murder victim.
The rock musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson includes a much darker song called "Ten Little Indians" that is modeled after this nursery rhyme.
