Many people recognize nursery rhymes from their childhood. The chants that were once deemed innocent and innocuous were anything but pure – they were written by English satirists in the Middle Ages to provide an outlet for social criticism. In those days, anyone who criticized a member of the royal family or the government could be put in prison – if not executed – so through seemingly inoffensive children's rhymes the critics were able to disparage and ridicule the follies of their leaders.
Over time these hidden commentaries turned into children's chants. Some of the best known nursery rhymes included Three Blind Mice which was written to commemorate the three Protestant noblemen who were burnt at the stake by Queen Mary, Ladybird Ladybird Fly Away Home which was sun go warn Catholic clergymen of impending raids on their Mass celebrations and Humpty Dumpty which noted the fall of the English town of Colchester during the 1648 Civil War.
Ba Ba Black Sheep nursery rhyme seems to be one of the oldest nursery rhymes. Historians date it to the 13th century and it is believed to record the adventures of Edward I who took the throne after the Crusaders returned to Europe. Edward decided to replenish the royal coffers by placing a tax on wool which was one of England's biggest industries.
The words of the rhyme:
Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You Any Wool?
Yes Sir, Yes Sir, Three Bags Full
One For The Master
One For The Dame
And One For The Little Boy
Who lives Down The Lane.
Researchers believe that the three bags of wool referred to in the rhyme represented the way that the wool was distributed -- one to the Master King Edward I, one to the Dame who was the symbol of the Church and one to the little boy who lives down the lane which was the farmer.
