歌詞[编辑]

這首歌的歌詞是[1]

Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Let me taste your ware.
Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
Show me first your penny;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Indeed I have not any.
Simple Simon went a-fishing,
For to catch a whale;
All the water he had got,
Was in his mother's pail.
Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.

起源[编辑]

簡單西蒙和餡餅商

現在這個版本的簡單西蒙出自1764年首版的一本暢銷故事書[1] 簡單西蒙這個角色曾出現在伊莉莎白時代的暢銷書及一首1685年的民謠《簡單西蒙的不幸與其妻馬潔麗的殘忍》(Simple Simon's Misfortunes and his Wife Margery's Cruelty)中。[1] 另外也可能與18世紀的一名乞丐西蒙·埃迪有關。[2]
