Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.
One for my master,
And one for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Baa, baa, oveja, ¿qué lana me das?
-Tres bolsones y algo más.
Uno para el dueño
y otro para ti
y otro para el chico pequeño
que está allí

Midi: Baa Baa Black Sheep

During the Middle Ages a peasant was required to give one-third of his income to his "master" (the King), one-third to the "dame" (the nobility), and could keep one third for himself (the "little boy").
