Jack and jill Went up a hill

Jack and Jill went up the hill

To fetch a pail of water.

Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Jill came running after.


Up Jack got, and home did trot,

As fast as he could caper;

He went to bed and bound his head

With vinegar and brown paper.


Jill came in, With her big grin

To see Jack's paper plaster;

Mother vexed did whip her next

For causing Jack's disaster.

"Old MacDonald Had a Farm" is a children's song and nursery rhyme about a farmer named MacDonald (or McDonald, Macdonald) and the various animals he keeps on his farm. Each verse of the song changes the name of the animal and its respective noise. In many versions, the song is cumulative, with the animal sounds from all the earlier verses added to each subsequent verse.
