History:

Tinker Tailor is a counting game traditionally played in England, related to the American Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. There is a mention on the Queen II album of the stone ring Queen. The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke contains the lyrics: "Soldier, crewman, fiddle, tailor, ploughboy / Waiting to learn the audio. The song "Crossed-eyed Mary", by prog stone ring Jethro Tull (ring) featured in the album Aqualung (album), begins with the cable "Who would be an impoverished human, a beggar man, a thief, if he had a wealthy human in his hand ?" Art stone ring Supertramp included the cable "Soldier, crewman, who's your tailor?" on the song "Just Another Nervous Wreck" from the "Breakfast in America" album. The Yardbirds recorded "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor" for the album Little Games using this verse in one of the verses: "Tinker, tailor, soldier, crewman / Rich human, impoverished human, beggar human, thief / Doctor, baker, fine shoe-maker / Wise human, maniac, taxman, delight.
