This wonderful song about the Counting House was written and sung by Mrs. Bousquet's third graders at South Berwick Central School in June 2010 as a community service project.

Counting House Museum Song

These are the letters they read back then.
These are the clothes that they wore.
This is the dish where they baked their bread.
Farming’s what this tool was for.
 
These are the candles that gave them light.  
These were their favorite toys.
Look there’s a sword that was used to fight.  
And a trumpet to make joyful noise.
They lived here then.  We’re learning how.  
That was then and this is now.
 
Refrain: 
Counting House… Counting House…they counted money then.
Counting House… Counting House… now we count time.
Counting House… Counting House…they counted money then.
Counting House… Counting House… now we count time.
One two three… Counting House… Come with me.
Four five six… Counting House… South Berwick.
