And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane!

Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Jack And Jill Rhyme Lyrics:

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.

Jack And Jill Rhyme Origin:Their are many different stories to the origin of this poem. One says that Jack and Jill were originally Hjuki and Bil, and the moon captured them while they were filling water from the well. The markings on the moon are said to be of the two boys and the bucket in between them !! check out the moon today !
Another says that it represents two kings, one English and the other French, who went to war, which resulted in large scale losses. The people hated them so much that they made this poem to make fun of them !

hmm... wonder why they didn't call it jack and john...but i guess that wouldn't rhyme with hill, right ?!! ..
