Georgie Porgie

Georgie Porgie, Puddin' and Pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out to play,
Georgie Porgie ran away.

Georgie Porgie wasn't so shy,
Just a really greasy guy.
People would laugh at their king,
As this rhyme the kids would sing.

Historical Note: The amoral "villain" who this rhyme was supposed to refer to is the Prince Regent, who later became King George IV of England [1762-1830].  As the Prince Regent, he was known as Prinny, for his numerous amorous and amoral indulgences. The children sang this rhyme in their little high pitched voices, while their parents listened with glee, to hear their prince so playfully insulted.

The End
