Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty in his place again.

Humpty Dumpty était assis sur un mur ;
Humpty Dumpty fit une grosse chute.
Tous les chevaux du roi, tous les hommes du roi
Ne purent remettre Humpty Dumpty à sa place.
