Ten little egos

Here is a song I wrote during a solitary retreat. If you would like to sing along it’s based on the melody “Ten green bottles” and feel free to add or subtract as many verses as you like, but don’t make the mistake of adding so many that you never get to the last one.
Enjoy!

Ten little egos
Ten little egos
Standing on a wall
Ten little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be nine little egos
Standing on a wall

Nine little egos
Standing on a wall
Nine little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be eight little egos
Standing on a wall

Eight little egos
Standing on a wall
Eight little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be seven little egos
Standing on a wall

Seven little egos
Standing on a wall
Seven little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be six little egos
Standing on a wall

Six little egos
Standing on a wall
Six little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be five little egos
Standing on a wall

Five little egos
Standing on a wall
Five little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be four little egos
Standing on a wall

Four little egos
Standing on a wall
Four little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be three little egos
Standing on a wall

Three little egos
Standing on a wall
Three little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be two little egos
Standing on a wall

Two little egos
Standing on a wall
Two little egos
Standing on a wall
And if one little ego
Should accidentally fall
There’ll be one little egos
Standing on a wall

One little ego
Standing on a wall
One little ego
Standing on a wall
And if that little ego
Should accidentally fall
Just answer the question:
Who’s looking at the wall?
