Humpty Dumpty Nursery Rhyme Lyrics

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a big fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

 

About the Classic Humpty Dumpty Nursery Rhyme

Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland portrays Humpty Dumpty as an egg who met his end when he fell from a wall. The first Humpty Dumpty, however, was a cannon in use during the English Civil War (1642 – 1649). The nursery rhyme is one of the most popular rhymes in the English language and was first published in 1797.
