The Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme is a children's rhyme which has a long history of being sung to a simple tune.
No-one is sure how old Humpty Dumpty is but it is generally thought by scholars to have been around for many hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of years.
The problem is that nursery rhymes were passed down orally from parents to their children for many, many years before anyone thought to write them down.
This is why it's usually not possible to work out exactly how old they are, where they originated or the original wording that was used.
Over the years, new variations appeared, making it even harder to trace the original rhyme.
Here are the words to Humpty Dumpty.
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.
