Baa Baa Black Sheep

Children’s song, U.K.Baa, Baa, Black Sheep“, just like “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star“, is a variant of the French melody “Ah! Vous dirai-je, Maman“. This lovely nursery rhyme and its numerous variations have been sung across Great Britain and North America. It is on the number 4439 in the Roud Folk Song Index.

The rhyme is known from the first half of the 18th century. One of the theories about the explanation of its meaning is political and related with the medieval taxes on wool and the slave trade.

Lyrics

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.

Teaching Ideas

“Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” can be used in teaching the musical variation  to younger kids in a simple manner. So we recommend to play and sing together (or in a row) with “Twinkle twinkle little star”.

As a cross-curricular activity, you could work with creative writing:  students could be encouraged to make a couple of lines on their own and then work together in groups to combine them into verses. Just let them unfold their creativity and have fun!
