“Jack and Jill” is a traditional English nursery rhyme which dates back at least to the 18th century. The phrase of the two names suggests, possibly, a romantically attached couple, as in the proverb “A good Jack makes a good Jill.”
“Jack and Jill” lyrics
1. Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.
2. Up Jack got and home did trot,
As fast as he could caper;
And went to bed and bound his head
With vinegar and brown paper.
3. When Jill came in how she did grin
To see Jack’s paper plaster;
Mother vexed did whip her next
For causing Jack’s disaster.
