What were the first words spoken by Thomas Edison when he made the first recording of the human voice?
-"One, Two, Three, Four"
-"Mr. Watson, come here, I need you"
-"Mary had a little lamb"
-"Can you hear me now"

<h1>"Mary had a little lamb"</h1>

Answer: On this day in 1877, Thomas A. Edison unveiled his invention of the phonograph, a way to record and play back sound. Edison stumbled on one of his greatest inventions–the phonograph–while working on a way to record telephone communication at his laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey. His work led him to experiment with a stylus on a tinfoil cylinder, which, to his surprise, played back the words he had recorded, “Mary had a little lamb”. Public demonstrations of the phonograph made the inventor world famous, and he was dubbed the “Wizard of Menlo Park.”

"Mary Had a Little Lamb" is an English language nursery rhyme of nineteenth-century American origin. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 7622.
