Does anyone have free sheet music of the nursery rhyme "Humpty Dumpty"? Arranged for any instrument (like piano?) please tell me.
You know

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

often known as 'Off She Goes'- first part only- try looking that up!

Also worth looking for is the great Tommy Sands conspiracy song from Northern Ireland- of its time maybe?? 'Humpty Dumpty was pushed'

18th century titles for the same tune were "Piss upon the Grass" and "Nancy Dawson".

I thought Nancy dawson was more 'Here we go round the Mulberry Bush' but I bow to those with musical knowledge.

Desi, that's actually the Archers theme tune.

Yes, Steve's right about Desi's interpretation.
Should be:
Dum-de-dum-de- da-da-da-dum,
Dum-de-dum-de- da-da-da-dum,
Da-da-de Da-da-de Da-da-de dum--de
Dum-de-dum-de-da-da-da-dum

We have "Off she Goes" in one of our ceilidh sets, usually for the final (Orcadian) Strip the Willow: not sure about Humpty Dumpty having a great fall, but one of our dancers did, and broke not one, but BOTH wrists in one go!

'often known as 'Off She Goes'- first part only- try looking that up!'

Convert it into reel time and you have 'Anything for John Joe'. It's one of those versatile tunes.
