Lyrics

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey.

There came a big spider,
Who sat down beside her.
And frightened Miss Muffet away!

Information About Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet is probably one of the most printed nursery rhymes printed in the 20th century. It was first printed in 1805, in the book Songs for the Nursery. It's origins are unclear, but it definitely started in England.

The rhyme has been attributed to Dr. Thomas Muffet. who was a physician and entomologist. It is said that he wrote it for his daughter Patience, because she was afraid of spiders. It has also been attributed to Mary Queen of Scots. but most scholars doubt this. However the idea is supported by the fact that it's possible the rhyme dates back to the late 16th century, before Dr. Muffet was born.

There are several alternate versions to this rhyme floating around. Some of the versions are taught, because whey is not a common food in every country. Versions like 'Little Mary Tester, Sat upon a tester' and 'Little Miss Mopsey, Sat in the Shopsey' are most likely parodies of the original. Even Walt Whitman published a version in 1868, though it was actually written by his partner.

This rhyme can be sung using props. like paper dolls or even finger puppets. Spider shaped cookies or other treats can be used to making learning the rhyme fun.

Sat on a tuffet,
Eating of curds and whey;
There came a big spider,
And sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
