For example, a well known lullaby such as " Rock-a-bye, baby on a tree top ", cannot be found in records until the lateth century when it was printed by John Newbery c.
A French poem, similar to "Thirty days hath September", numbering the days of the month, was recorded in the 13th century. The earliest recorded version of the rhyme appears in Thomas d'Urfey 's play The Campaigners from Most nursery rhymes were not written down until the 18th century, when the publishing of children's books began to move from polemic and education towards entertainment, but there is evidence for many rhymes existing before this, including " To market, to market " and " Cock a doodle doo ", which date from at least the late 16th century.

In the late 20th century revisionism of nursery rhymes became associated with the idea of political correctness.
Most attempts to reform nursery rhymes on this basis appear to be either very small scale, light-hearted updating, like Felix Dennis's When Jack Sued Jill — Nursery Rhymes for Modern Times , or satires written as if from the point of view of political correctness in order to condemn reform.
