Little Tommy Tucker
Sings for his supper;
What shall we give him?
White bread and butter.
Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book, c 1744
Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book is the earliest extant printed collection of English language nursery rhymes, published in London in 1744. It was a sequel to the lost Tommy Thumb’s Song Book and contains the oldest version of many well-known and popular rhymes, as well as several that have been largely forgotten.
