Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard

Went to the cupboard

To get her poor dog a bone,

But when she came there

The cupboard was bare,

And so the poor dog had none.

She went to the baker's

To buy him some bread,

When she came back

The dog was dead.

She went to the undertaker's

To buy him a coffin,

When she got back

The dog was laughing.

She went to the barber's

To buy him a wig,

When she came back

He was dancing a jig.

She went to the hatter's

To buy him a hat,

When she came back

He was feeding the cat.

She went to the hosier's

To buy him some hose,

When she came back

He was dressed in his clothes.

She went to the fruiters

To buy him some fruit,

When she came back

He was playing the flute.

She went to the tailor's

To buy him a coat,

When she came back

He was riding a goat.

She went to the cobbler's

To buy him some shoes,

When she came back

He was reading the news.

The dame made a curtsy,

The dog made a bow,

The dame said, "You're welcome,"

The dog said, "Bow-wow."
