1177. Little Boy Blue

Nadia sat her class of six-year-olds in a circle on the class mat.

Children! Let’s sing our favourite nursey rhyme shall we? Let’s all hold hands.

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.
The sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn.
Where is the boy that looks after the sheep?
“He’s under the haycock, fast asleep.”
Will you wake him? “No, not I;
For if I do, he’s sure to cry.”

That’s lovely children.

Excuse me miss, said Little Kevin. I did a search for it on my phone. It said that the words cannot be connected to any historical figure in history but there is a theory that ‘Little Boy Blue’ refers to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey dating back to the reign of King Henry VIII. Is this true?

Well aren’t we a big know-all, you obstreperous little rat. If you can’t behave like a normal little kid then at least shut your mouth.
