Lucy Locket lost her pocket
Kitty Fisher found it
There was not a penny in it
But a ribbon round it.

Information About Lucy Locket Lost Her Pocket

Lucy Locket Lost Her Pocket is an English nursery rhyme. The tune for this song is the same as that for "Yankee Doodle" and it is not sure which set of lyrics was used first with the melody.

The rhyme was first recorded by James Orchard Halliwell in 1842. There is evidence to suggest it was popular in both Britain and America at this time.

James Orchard Halliwell suggested that Lucy Locket and Kitty Fisher were celebrated courtesans at the time of Charles II, but no supportive evidence has been found. The name Lucy Locket was used in 1728 by dramatist John Gay in "Beggar's Opera".

Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it;
Nothing in it, nothing in it,
But the binding round it.
