When I ask the kids at playgroup which nursery rhyme they would like to sing, Humpty Dumpty is the first one they say. Followed by Twinkle Star, and then Baa Baa Black Sheep.
HUMPTY DUMPTYHumpty Dumpty Sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty Had a great fall All the kings horses And all the kings men Couldn’t put Humpty together again
Did you know that Humpty Dumpty was a canon? http://www.rhymes.org.uk/humpty_dumpty.htm
