Here is an intermediate version:

/*
Purpose: A distracting song for Children
	 Input : none
		 Output :
 
		 99 bottles of milk on the wall,
		 99 bottles of milk on the wall,
		 take one down and pass it around,
		 98 bottles of milk on the wall.
 
		 98 bottles of milk on the wall,
		 98 bottles of milk on the wall,
		 take one down and pass it around,
		 97 bottles of milk on the wall.
 
		 ...
 
		 2 bottles of milk on the wall,
		 2 bottles of milk on the wall,
		 take one down and pass it around,
		 1 bottle of milk on the wall.
 
		 1 bottle of milk on the wall,
		 1 bottle of milk on the wall,
		 take one down and pass it around,
		 no bottles of milk on the wall.
 
 
Traditionally starting at  99
 
Test :
 
Using a variable "verses" adjust how many verses are to be sung:
 
At verses = 99 you get the output given above.
 
At verses = 4 you get:
 
4 bottles of milk on the wall,
4 bottles of milk on the wall,
take one down and pass it around,
3 bottles of milk on the wall.
 
3 bottles of milk on the wall,
3 bottles of milk on the wall,
take one down and pass it around,
2 bottles of milk on the wall.
 
2 bottles of milk on the wall,
2 bottles of milk on the wall,
take one down and pass it around,
1 bottle of milk on the wall.
 
1 bottle of milk on the wall,
1 bottle of milk on the wall,
take one down and pass it around,
no bottles of milk on the wall.
