Baa Baa Black Sheep


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.

 

This rhyme dates from 1750 and its meaning has been suggested as

a. Being a complaint against a high tax on wool

b. Referring obliquely to the slave trade
