“Ding Dong Bell” is a nursery rhyme, whose first recorded version can be found since the end of the 16th century. The phrase ‘Ding, dong, bell’ also appears several times in plays by Shakespeare. However, it could actually have been written by the playwright as instructions for sound effects.
“Ding Dong Bell (Pussy’s in the well)” lyrics
Ding, dong, bell,
Pussy’s in the well.
Who put her in?
Little Johnny Flynn.
Who pulled her out?
Little Tommy Stout.
What a naughty boy was that,
To try to drown poor pussy cat,
Who never did him any harm,
But killed all the mice in the farmer’s barn
