Who Killed Cock Robin Nursery Rhyme Lyrics

 Description:

The children’s nursery rhyme “Who Killed Cock Robin” is a traditional nursery rhyme. The earliest published form of the poem was in England in 1744, and some people believe it is actually a political poem about the downfall of Robert Walpole’s government, which happened in 1742. This belief comes from the timing of the poem’s first written publication and the fact that “Robin” was a common nickname for someone named Robert.

Lyrics To “Who Killed Cock Robin”

 

Who killed Cock-Robin?
‘I’ said the sparrow, ‘with my little bow and arrow,
I killed Cock-Robin’.

Who saw him die?
‘I’ said the fly, ‘with my little eye,
I saw him die’.

Who’ll dig his grave?
‘I’ said the owl, ‘with my spade and trowel,
I’ll dig his grave’.

Who’ll be the parson?
‘I’ said the rook, ‘with my little book,
I’ll be the parson’.

And all the birds of the air,
Fell sighing and a sobbin’
When they heard the bell toll for poor Cock-Robin.

Who will be chief mourner?
‘I’ said the dove, ‘for I mourn my love,
I’ll be chief mourner’.

Who will sing the psalm?
‘I’ said the thrush, ‘as I sit in a bush,
I’ll sing the psalm’.

Who will carry the coffin?
‘I’ said the kite, ‘if it’s not in the night,
I’ll carry the coffin’.

Who’ll toll the bell?
‘I’ said the bull, ‘because I can pull,
I’ll toll the bell’.

For all the birds of the air,
Fell sighing and a sobbin’
When they heard the bell toll for poor Cock-Robin.
