JACK SPRAT Hello, My name is Jack Sprat and I will be traveling with you through my Nursery Rhyme!
JACK SPRAT Jack Sprat could eat no fat, His wife could eat no lean. And so between the two of them, They licked the platter clean. Jack ate all the lean, Joan ate all the fat. The bone they picked clean, Then gave it to the cat. Jack Sprat was wheeling, His wife by the ditch. The barrow turned over, And in she did pitch. Says Jack, “She’ll be drowned”, But Joan did reply. “I don’t think I shall, For the ditch is quite dry”.
JACK SPRAT HISTORY This Nursery Rhyme is based off of the King Charles I and his wife Queen Henrietta Maria. When King Charles (Jack Sprat) declared war on Spain, parliament refused to give him money (leaving him lean). So his wife made an illegal war tax (to get some fat) after the angered King got rid of parliament.
