"Hey Diddle Diddle" is a popular nursery rhyme.Many cultures (though not all; see below) feature children's songs and verses that are passed down by oral tradition from one generation to the next (either from parent to child, or from older children to younger children).

In the English language, the term "nursery rhyme" generally refers to those of European origin, and the best known examples are English and originated in or since the 17th century. Their origins were possibly a form of oral political cartoon, from an era when free speech could get the speaker imprisoned. Nursery rhymes, however, are often violent in nature, for example, in Jack and Jill, Jack fell down and "Broke his crown"- meaning breaking his skull. Some nursery rhymes, however, are substantially older. "Sing a Song of Sixpence" exists in written records as far back as the Middle Ages.

Some well known nursery rhymes originated in the United States, such as "Mary had a little lamb". Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
