pica pica.

one for sorrow
two for joy

three for a girl and

four for a boy

five for silver

six for gold

seven is a secret never to be told

eight is a wish and

nine is a kiss

ten is a bird you must not miss.

seeing a single magpie is bad luck. to ward off misfortune say this rhyme or greet him with "hello mr. magpie, how is your wife?".
