The Little Man Had A Little Gun

This song is considered sensitive and contains lyrics that may be offensive to some people. Please speak to a parent or guardian for further help.


There was a little man and he had a little gun,
And his bullets were made of lead, lead, lead;
He went to the brook and shot a little duck,
And he shot it right through the head, head, head.

Calm down. I sing the song to my children and they understand it as about hunting. In fact we can trace this song having been sung to successive generations of my family since about 1780 (AD)... although the last line is a touch wrong (too many beats in it).

I'm 66 and my grandmother sang this to me when I was very young. In the song they ate the bird, this wasn't sport it was food. Songs were like that then. Today we live in a world filled with violence but is it songs like this or violent video games that are today's problem?

I take it non of you are hunters, then? God forbid your child know where his or her food comes from.

I like it, if you don't agree with it then don't teach it to your children. It's a good song for kids raised around hunting communities like mine.

Children whose Dad's hunt would understand the song. Others may not. If it offends, do not read it to your child.

Agreed! Especially to have it on the "learning" page - NOT things I want my kids to be learning!
