Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn.
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under a haycock, fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I,
For if I do, he's sure to cry.
Little Boy Blue is thought to be that of Thomas
Wolsey, a dominant
figure in the government of King Henry VII from 1515-1529.
