Hendrix, 6, of Dunsborough in Western Australia
A common answer to this question is that the ABC song was first copyrighted under the title The Schoolmaster in 1834 by an American man named Charles Bradlee. You can see the original sheet music and lyrics here.
But the history of this famous song goes back a little further than that.
