Did he fall or was he Pushed? -
The True Story of Humpty Dumpty by Anna McKeay


Narrator: Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall. Was he pushed or did he fall? As he lay there on the ground Policeman came to look around.

Enter Policeman, Jack and Jill

Policeman:
Mr Humpty has had a fall; Did you see anything at all?

Jack: I was there up on the hill. Getting water with my friend Jill

Policeman: So it was you! I heard it said.  Someone fell and hurt their head.

Enter the Grand Old Duke of York, with soldiers

Policeman:
Mr Humpty has had a fall. Did you see anything at all?

Duke: I was busy with all my men. Going up the hill and down again.

Little Boy Blue enters and lies down in the corner.

Narrator:
The Policeman went along his way. And found Little Boy Blue asleep in the hay.

Policeman: Mr Humpty has had a fall. Did you see anything at all?

Little Boy Blue: Oh, oh, I was fast asleep. Where are the cows? Where are the sheep?

He runs off. Enter Old King Cole and fiddlers.

Policeman: Mr Humpty has had a fall. Did you see anything at all?

Old King Cole: I saw nothing - no, not me! You'd better ask my fiddlers three.

Fiddlers shake their heads. Georgie Porgie runs in.

Policeman: Mr Humpty has had a fall. Did you see anything at all?

Narrator: But Georgie Porgie ran away -      The girls were chasing him that day!

Enter Little Bo Peep

Narrator:
Bo Peep was looking everywhere. A bonnet on her pretty hair.

Bo Peep: Where are my sheep? They've gone away; I‘ll keep on looking, if it takes all day!

Enter Mother Hubbard.

Narrator:
Mother Hubbard looked so sad.
      
Policeman: Mrs Hubbard, this is very bad ...

Mother Hubbard: I know, I know. Don't you see? There's no food for dog and me!

Enter Queen of Hearts and her ladies.

Policeman:
Mr Humpty has had a fall. Did you see anything at all?

Narrator: The Queen of Hearts was quite irate. Waving around her empty plate.

Queen: My tarts! My tarts have gone! How do I know what went wrong?

Enter Mary Mary Quite Contrary.

Narrator:
In her garden was Mary Mary. With the flowers all contrary

Policeman:   Mr Humpty has had a fall.
Did you see anything at all?

Mary Mary: I saw it happen, I did. You know, you should have asked me long ago! You know Dish ran away with Spoon? Well, Cow kicked Humpty as she jumped over the moon!

Narrator: There was the answer to Humpty's fall, it really wasn't a mystery at all!

Finish by bringing on the Cow, Dish, Spoon, Cat (with fiddle) and the Little Dog (who laughed), sing ‘Hey Diddle Diddle’. Humpty Dumpty lies on the stage throughout, clutching his head, but gets up at the end to show he’s all right.
