The majority of nursery rhymes have their roots in some story from long ago.
For example, 'Ding Dong Dell' is about prostitutes, Humpty Dumpty was in fact a cannon and Miss Muffet was a real person, the daughter of a Doctor Muffet who used spiders as medicine.
Baa Baa Black sheep was from around the 1740's and was about SHEEP.
The original words were:
Bah, Bah a black Sheep,
Have you any Wool?
Yes merry have I,
Three Bags full,
One for my master,
One for my Dame,
One for the little Boy
That lives down the lane.
The most favoured meaning/root of the rhyme was that it descibed the tax on wool. One third of the money made selling the wool went to the King (Master) one to the Church (Dame) and one was kept (the 'little boy down the lane' being the owner of the sheep). However, there are no records that a tax existed in this form and wool was actually taxed at around six shillings a bag.
It seems then that they have yet to uncover the true meaning behind the rhyme. Personally I think it doesn't have one and it's just a kiddies song.
how does songs like baa baa black sheep, head sholders knees and toes, 5 little ducks, and im going to mail my?
Songs are typically a fun method of teaching young children. In the case of Head, shoulders, knees and toes, the children are learning the location and the correct pronunciation of body parts. Everyone has their own way of learning. These songs accompanied with movement cover kids that learn via tactile (touching), visual (see others) and auditory (singing) channels.

Name, info on a book called Baa? Or something like that, it was about sheep building and destorying themselves
Baaa by David Macaulay
From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up Though a timely fable, purchase of this title would depend on demand for satirical, semi-apocalyptic material. "There is no record of when the last person disappeared." The human population of Earth is dead. A flock of sheep, in search of food, wanders into an abandoned town, and, with the help of supermarkets, television and video-cassette recorders, take up where humanity has left off. With the benefits of civilization come the problems that go with it - overpopulation, food shortages, rationing, crime and military police. Then, a solution to the food shortage is found - Baaa. As the availability of Baaa increases, the population decreases, until the day the last two sheep meet for lunch. "There is no record of when the last one (sheep) disappeared." While this is not a new idea, it is thoughtfully and humorously presented. The illustrations black-and-white ink-wash drawings have charm and wit. The sophisticated humor will be accessible to older children, but the picture book format may not attract them. A useful discussion-provoking title where high concept/low level material is needed.

It is made up of 2 Thai words, Ya is medicine, while Ba is crazy. So this is a word to describe so-called crazy pills or more commonly known as Ice or amphetamines.
It is becoming a social problem as it is believed that this is made in neighbouring Myanmar and is easily supplied into Thailand. And it is cheap. However the quality is always doubted and deaths from consumption had been noted.
In which episode of The Office is when they all fight and there is a sheep's 'baa' heard in the background?
Could you add a bit more context to this? If you mean "fight" as in "argue," it could be about half of the episodes. If you mean physical fights there could be a lot, depending on who you're talking about: Michael and Dwight in "The Fight," Andy and Dwight in "The Duel," Jan and Michael in "Dinner Party," etc. If you could say who is fighting, what kind (argument, fight fight, etc.), what they're fighting about, or anything like that, it would help identify it.
If you add more information like that, I will hopefully be able to give you an answer.
note: in addition to The Surplus mentioned by the other user, Dwight takes Ryan to Schrute Farms in "Initiation" (S03E05), where they frequently argue and Ryan is supposed to wrestle with Mose (who is representing "fear").
Can you still use 'baa baa black sheep' or is it seen as racism?
I think most educational establishments have banned the use of bar bar black sheep now. My nephew is 4 and they don't use it in his school. However I think this is silly, black is a colour I don't see how it can be seen as racist. And now they refer to what was 'black boards' then became chalk boards as white boards... I don't see how white board is less racist than black board but hey thats the crazy politically correct people who mess it up for all of us. Im Indian and hate to be treated as if somehow this is what I want all this over the top political correctness..... madness
Is the nursery rhyme 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep' racist towards black people?
No--I'm sure that rumor only came about because the words "black" and "master" are involved.
It actually is entirely to do with the wool trade.
You can read more about it here--just scroll down a bit. It's actually somewhat interesting:
It is not socially acceptable in this time in our lives,we have grown as people and do not want to offend children it may not be important to some and they may see the implications it raise with some children to be Black and someone singing this it is offensive and should not happen. Each child should feel comfortable and not experience differences in a educational setting. Children are very sensitive and bad experiences have lasting affects on them. As some deemed it is not politically correct due to changes in our education and meeting the needs of others and being aware of stereotypes.
Surprisingly enough to me, it looks like the board of directors is made up or more Spaniards and Canadians than anything else. Here is their websites url: http://www.baa.com/portal/page/Corporate%5EAbout+BAA%5E
(You'll need to cut and paste the second line into the address window).
Sorry its so long. If it won't work just search for BAA and look at the "Who We Are" tab. A quick search of their resumes shows nothing about knowledge of how to pilot a plane. They are all business and entrepreneurial, imho. Just smart enough to hire the pilots and not get their feet 'wet' with actual aircraft or airport operations, probably. Again, imho.
I have no comment as to why only a couple of native Brits still serve on that important national board. Hmmmmmm.
I fail to see what Greece has to do with Heathrow, England and BAA.
Anyway, since it seems that that is your dream, then you simply state that you want to follow your dream that you have since childhood. Also let them know what you are talking about by mentioning a few more details of what you are expected to do once you get hired.
What percentage should i get in every sub-tests in UPCAT to pass BS BAA, a quota course?
Those are pretty good. Your grades in high school would affect about 25% of your UPG. However, your grades aren't a guarantee you'll pass. It'll all come down to how you apply that knowledge during the UPCAT. Our class valedictorian and salutatorian didn't pass the UPCAT, but those of lower ranks in the class did.
I think you're going for a slot in the UP Diliman campus like every other UPCAT hopeful. Well, that's fine but I recommend putting UP Los Banos as your second campus preference. UPLB has lower UPG requirements. You can just request to be placed in another campus if ever you pass.
Study at least a month before the UPCAT. Remember your basics. There's a lot of Biology and Chemistry in the test.
What options, paths can I take with a BAA in psychology?
Some states allow a Bachelors degree in a human services field such as Psychology and Sociology for entry level employment in case management services such as a probation officer, juvenial deliquency case manager, family services/child protection worker, disability services case manager, etc. If you gain certification, you can also teach Psychology at the High School Level. You could work as a Psychiatric Technician (nurses' aid) at a Psychiatric hospital, oversee research subjects in the private/government sector (e.g., in drug trials). Police work is also an option, as well as furthering your education to the graduate level for a career in private practice.
Sounds like you are already a skilled photographer, why not stay in that field if you enjoy it -- crime scene photography, private studio, employment with Olan Mills or the like?
Have Buoyancy Assisted Airship (BAA) designs in the 50% bouyancy range been investigated?
Oh, yes. There was one that had four helicopters (on on each corner) along with the air bag. Didn't work well. Crashed. Popular Science also had an article on it years ago. They were even investigated as a option in the logging industry for rough terrain access.
What is the name of the song that says "It ain't no lie, baa, baa, baa"? I think it might be by Britney Spears?
Hahaha nice interpretation. "Baa Baa Baa" is pretty much what Justin Timberlake says. And his very high voice makes him sound like Britney Spears. Don't mean to offend you or anything, the song's very catchy, I just find this hilarious!
Has 'BAA' been taken over by 'ADI' and if so, what happens to my 'BAA' shares? What do I do with them next?
Yes they were taken over in 2006 for £9.35 a share in cash. Do not use Keysearch to claim your entitlement, or they will deduct a fee of 15% +VAT. Try calling Computershare on 0800 408 1003 and follow the instructions.
ANY PLACE I CAN WATCH THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BAA BAA'S GAME?
this guys youtube channel features all the games. he just uploaded the entire all blacks - baa baa's game.
if you just want to watch the highlights then they should come up on youtube some time soon.
How does the song Baa, Baa, Black Sheep promote phonological awareness?
Kids chant it and notice the rhyme. WOOL/FULL. Their brains think, oh, if I change the first sound from w-->f, then it makes a different word. Of course their little brains don't know the names of the letters, but they are trying to sort out what is important in their language and what isn't. The brain thinks, "Obviously f and w are important sounds in my language because they change the meaning of a word." This is phonemic awareness--understanding what are the important sounds in your language.
In Chinese, the words have tones. So if you say FAN? or FAN!, the words are completely different. One means "rice" and the other means something completely different. So Chinese children need to learn that the tone of the vowel makes a different meaning. But English speaking children don't.
On many airlines, tickets are automatically cancelled if you fail to show up for your flight. You need to call the airline as soon as possible (and now, if you can) to see whether you can make arrangements for a later flight -- showing up the next day without making such arrangements might mean that you're going nowhere and are stuck with a worthless ticket.
