Humpty Dumpty doorstops


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.

Hompie Kedompie sit op die wal,

Hompie Kedompie het afgeval,

Die koningse soldate

Probeeral wat hul kan,

Maar Hompie Kedompie bly plat soos 'n pan
