Children's Songs and Ballads - Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard, she went to the cupboard,
To get her poor doggie a bone;
When she got there, the cupboard was bare,
And so the poor doggie had none.

She went to the baker's to buy him some bread,
But when she came back the poor doggie was dead.
She went to the undertaker's to buy him a coffin,
And when she came back the doggie was laughing.

She went to the butcher's to get him some tripe,
And when she came back he was smoking a pipe.
She went to the fish-shop to buy him some fish,
And when she came back he was washing the dish.

She went to the tavern for white wine and red,
And when she came back doggie stood on his head.
She went to the hatter's to buy him a hat,
And when she came back he was feeding the cat.

She went to the tailor's to buy him a coat,
And when she came back he was riding the goat.
She went to the barber's to buy him a wig
And when she came back he was dancing a jig.

She went to the draper's to buy him some linen,
And when she came back the good dog was spinning.
She went to the hosier's to buy him some hose,
And 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!"
