Baa, Baa, Black Sheep lyrics originated around 1731 in Britain. The supposed origin is the slave trade and the medieval wool tax.
The tune is the same as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star which is a French folk song melody Ah! vous dirai-je, maman which dates from 1761.
The nursery rhyme is easy for todlers and children to learn and sing.
The original version of the lyrics is:
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
