This rhyme also mentions the No. 7 so the child can count the sons and the jobs.

The rhyme about the stone mason and the carpenter can also be categorized with silly rhymes because of the made up words “ eelek beelik boom”and the strange out of context situations. Another rhymes that is connected to an occasion is "Cut his Hair Oh Barber". It is usually recited by the proud mother or grandmother to celebrate the first hair cut.
