Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and
broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Then up Jack got and
off did trot,
As fast as he could caper,
To old Dame Dob,
who patched his nob
With vinegar and brown paper.

Is there more to this?
Why does Jack appear to be wearing a dress? Until quite recently, all little children wore dresses.
Boys did not get their first pants until about 6 years old or thereabouts.

Midi: Jack and Jill
