Baa Baa Black Sheep

Heard of “Baa Baa Black Sheep”? Guess almost everyone heard of this English nursery rhyme when they were young, I would assume. Of course, I don’t really know what our younger generation is being taught in school at the moment. That is because neither I have any children nor a teacher yet.

Where does it actually originate? “Baa Baa Black Sheep is an English nursery rhyme, sung to a variant of the 1761 French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman. The original form of the tune is used for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the Alphabet song.” What is the original version? After some searching, this is the original lyric stated below.

Bah, Bah a black Sheep,
Have you any Wool?
Yes merry have I,
Three Bags full,
One for my master,
One for my Dame,
One for the little Boy
That lives down the lane.

Of course, what actually caught my attention was the black sheep in the photo instead of the nursery rhyme. Oh yes, the black sheep wasn't very photogenic and was very busy mowing the lawn that day. But the modern nursery rhyme of “Baa Baa Black Sheep” does immediately kicks in to my brain, when I saw the black sheep and the modern lyric begins singing as below.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.
One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Well, follow me and be my followers. That's all, folks.
