Old mother Hubbard

Old mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To fetch her poor dog a bone

But when she came there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor dog had none.


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


She went to the grocer's
To buy him some fruit;
But when she came back
He was playing the flute.


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


She went to the undertaker's
to buy him a coffin;
