Baby Songs Sing a Song of Sixpence

Popular Nursery Rhymes

The nursery rhyme is also known as blackbirds baked in a pie. Children loved the song very much not only at school but also at their homes. It was believed that the image of small blackbirds being baked in a pie would have very good impressions to the children. You need to realize that back in the days; blackbirds and many other birds were usually eaten as a delicacy. Another very important aspect of the song was that people did not quite understand the roles of the king and queen. They did not understand very well what the king and queen spent their days doing. They were viewed as lazy people. The history of the song is actually not known very well. In fact, the details that are currently addressed are usually based on perception.


Sing a Song of Sixpence Lyrics


The original version is:

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
Oh wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!
