Old Mother Hubbard


OLD Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone;
But when she got there
The cupboard was bare,
And so the poor dog had none.

She went to the bakerís
To buy him some bread,
But when she came back
The poor dog was dead.

She went to the joinerís
To buy him a coffin,
But when she came back
The dog he was laughing.

She took a clean dish
To get him some tripe,
But when she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the fishmongerís
To buy him some fish,
But when she came back
He was licking the dish.

She went to the ale-house
To get him some beer,
But when she came back
The dog sat in a chair.

She went to the tavern
For white wine and red,
But when she came back
The dog stood on his head.

She went to the barberís
To buy him a wig,
But when she came back
He was dancing jig.

She went to the tailorís
To buy him a coat,
But when she came back
He was riding a goat.

She went to the cobblerís
To buy him some shoes,
But when she came back
He was reading the news.

She went to the hatterís
to buy him a hat,
But when she came back
He was feeding the cat.

She went to the fruitererís
To buy him some fruit,
But when she came back
He was playing the flute.

She went to the sempsterís
To buy him some linen,
But when she came back
The dog he was spinning.

She went to the hosierís
To buy him some hose,
But when she came back
He was dressed in his clothes.

The dame made a curtsey,
The dog made a bow;
The dame said, "Your servant,"
The dog said, "Bow-wow!"
