What is the Lizzie Borden song?

Answer

The Lizzie Borden song is a rhyme about a sensational murder. The lyric is "Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her father 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her mother 41."

The rhyme or song was based on the murders of the father and stepmother of Lizzie Borden, according to History.com. The family was prominent in the area, and the crime was extensively covered by the media at the time. Although Lizzie Borden was found innocent of the murders, she was widely believed to have been guilty. She chose to remain in her hometown of Fall River, Mass., even though she faced ostracism.
