Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One a penny, two a penny,.

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons!

One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot-cross buns!

Information About Hot Cross Buns

"Hot Cross Buns" is the name of a sweet, bread bun, made with raisins and currants and it also happens to be the name of a children's song about the very bakers who sell them. Many countries with large Christian populations eat such buns, toasted, on Good Friday as part of the Easter tradition, where the cross stands as a symbol of the crucifixion.

There are records of this rhyme dating back to the early 18th century where it probably has its origins in the street cry of the vendor.

Hot cross buns,
Hot cross buns,
One ha' penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

Fresh, sweet buns,
Come and buy my buns,
One ha' penny,
Two a penny,
Fresh, sweet buns.

Nice, light buns,
Buy my currant buns,
Come and try them,
Then you'll buy them,
Nice, light buns.

Hot cross buns,
Hot cross buns,
Everybody loves hot cross buns.
