Humpty Dumpty is a character in an English nursery rhyme, probably a riddle and one of the best known in the English-speaking world. He is typically portrayed as a personified egg, though he is not explicitly described as such.
The first recorded versions of the rhyme date from the eighteenth-century England and the tune from 1870 in James William Elliott’s National Nursery Rhymes and Nursery Songs. Its origins are obscure and several theories have been advanced to suggest original meanings. It has also been used as a common motif in popular music, including Hank Thompson’s “Humpty Dumpty Heart” (1948)





Hank Thompson – Humpty Dumpty Heart Lyrics

Humpty dumpty set on the wall humpty dumpty had a big fall
All the king’s horses all the king’s men could never put humpty together again
I’ve got a humpty dumpty heart you dropped it and broke it apart
All the king’s horses all the king’s men could never put humpty together again
Cause when I gave to you my heart you said that we must part
That was my doom my heart went boom I got a humpty dumpty heart
[ fiddle ]
My heart is a fragile thing when dropped it won’t bounce or ring
It ain’t no joke cause when it’s broke no love song will it sing
I’ve got a humpty dumpty heart…
I didn’t think you were that sort when I handed you my heart
You got it on a platter but you let it shatter my humpty dumpty heart
I’ve got a humpty dumpty heart…
You’ve just gotta have another cigarette
