Ten Green Bottles

... or simply Green Bottles is a well known children's song.
Like many folk songs the origin of "Ten Green Bottles" is lost to antiquity, it was believed to be of English, more specifically of Yorkshire origin, although one suggestion is that greenbottles refers to officers of the Metropolitan Police, apparently underworld jargon for the new force founded by Act of Parliament in 1829.
