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.






History:

Although its source is unidentified, it's likely the "George" satirized in the poetry is King George III of England, whose hysterics of insanity and fickleness were well-known. While others consider it may refer to the future George IV, the Prince Regent, who was a infamous womaniser. Georgie Porgie is a kindergarten poem which a number of people see as an early allusion to sexual harassment.
