The rhyme of this English song, expressing probably a riddle, dates from the late eighteenth century and the tune from 1870, but there is no specific information about its origins. Humpty Dumpty is a figure usually illustrated as an anthropomorphic egg.
As a character it is most known from Lewis Carroll’s novel “Through the Looking-Glass”.
“Humpty Dumpty” lyrics
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
