Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

They called out the Council for cleaning and brushing
The Fire Brigade came – all noises and rushing
But even the workmen and brave firemen
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

They tried with adhesive, they tied it with string
They brought a bull dozer – a great metal thing
But all of the workers and all of the men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

The policemen, the doctors and the nursing corps
Came down to bandage and lay down the law.
Inspectors, physicians and all of the men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

They sent for the press, being beyond a joke
People were homeless, streets running with yolk
But all the reporters and TV men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

They sent for the army, with armour and trucks
The convoy arrived with cranes, chains and hooks
But all of the Generals with all of their men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

The traffic warden’s face soon beamed to a shine
Booking poor Humpty on a double yellow line
Yet the lollypop lady and warden and men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

The air force flew by from the sky in their planes
But they couldn’t get rid of the mess and the stains.
The squadron leader and all of his men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Ecclesiasticals received the call
Couldn’t do much but alter the wall
Yet the archbishop and all of his men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Legal advisers were called to the scene
PM and MPs and of course the Queen
But even the ruler and all of her men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

After the thunder and after the rain
The sun came out from the clouds once again
And all that it took was a fat red hen
To lay on the wall and make Humpty again.
