How Many Were Going To Saint Ives?

My grandmother told me this when I was about 4. I knew it's really old and I thought I'd Google it to find out how old. Turns out it first appeared about 1650 b.c.
I was interested in what Wiki had to say about it as a solution and thought I'd post it.
I just love the ambiguity of language when you are trying to defend a concept.
The real answer is 10990.

As I was going to Saint Ives,
I crossed the path of seven wives.
Every wife had seven sacks,
Every sack had seven cats,
Every cat had seven kittens,
Kittens, cats, sacks, wives,
How many were going to Saint Ives?
