Miss Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
Down her back, back, back…

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They touched the sky, sky, sky
And they didn't come back, back, back
'Til the Fourth of July, -ly, -ly.

She went upstairs, stairs, stairs
To make her bed, bed, bed
But she made a mistake, -stake, -stake
She bumped her head, head, head.

She went downstairs, stairs, stairs
To make some stew, stew, stew
But she made a mistake, -stake, -stake
She cooked her shoe, shoe, shoe

She went outside, side, side
To hang some clothes, clothes, clothes
But she made a mistake, -stake, -stake
She hung her nose, nose, nose!
