Just had a hot cross bun for lunch and, as always when consuming such an article, was reminded of the song

Hot cross buns, hot cross buns
One a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns.
If you have no daughters, give them to your sons
One a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns.


So, what we are saying is that daughters always have first choice! How unfair is that?

:D (eG)

But the other way round would have spoiled the rhyme

It could be
Give them to your daughters, if you have no sons.
The seller assumes that buns are considered girls' stuff, somewhat like Easter bunnies. Where is the song from?

It's an old nursery rhyme and one of the first pieces I learned to sing when I was much younger and play on the piano.
