Baa Baa Black Sheep

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

No historical significance can be attributed to this nursery rhyme. It is sung to the same tune as “A, B, C, D, E, F, G” which in turn is from a French tune (“Ah vous dirai je”) .
