Lucy Locket


Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it;
Not a penny was there in it,
Only ribbon round it.






History:

Lucy Locket was a barmaid at the Cock, in Fleet Street, London, for a while in the 1700s. Lucy discarded one of her lovers (her 'pocket') when she had run through all his cash. Kitty Fisher, a renowned courtesan, took up with him, still although he had no cash. Lucy Locket is an English nursery school rhyme.
