It is unknown that Discworld has its own version of the celebrated counting song 'Green Grow the Rushes-o'. Naturally, the most extended verse begins 'I'll sing you the twelve-o, Brown flows the Ankh-o... What are your twelve-o? Twelve for the something-or-other' -- and goes rapidly downhill to 'One is one is Great A'Tuin and evermore shall be so'. From the list below you should be able to reconstruct the lines (which don't all scan very well, or at all*) and put them in order.

? -- Stone Dancers

? -- Yoked Oxen

? -- Shadows on the wall

? -- Spelter's level

? -- Moving Pictures

? -- Books of the Prophets

? -- Strokes of nine-ish

? -- cc of mouse blood

? -- Month of Ember

? -- Rincewind's number

? -- Fast-painting demons

? -- Crippled onion


*singers are expected to gloss over this with inordinate loudness and a lot of quaffing
