This English nursery rhyme dates back to the 17th century. According to Wikipedia “Katherine Elwes Thomas in The Real Personages of Mother Goose (1930) suggested the rhyme referred to resentment at the heavy taxation on wool”.
Although there is no supporting historical evidence, this rhyme has been allegedly connected to the slave trade in the southern United States.
