Old Mother Hubbard;

Went to the cupboard,

To give 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 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 took a clean dish

To get him some tripe;

When she came back

He was smoking a pipe.


She went to the alehouse

To get him some beer;

When she came back

The dog sat in a chair.


She went to the tavern

For white wine and red;

When she came back

The dog stood on his head.


She went to the hatter’s

To buy him a hat;

When she came back

He was feeding the cat.


She went to the barber’s

To buy him a wig;

When she came back

He was dancing a jig.


She went to the fruiterer’s

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.


She went to the sempster’s

To buy him some linen;

When she came back

The dog was a-spinning.


She went to the hosier’s

To buy him some hose;

When she came back

He was dressed in his clothes.


The dame made a curtsy,

The dog made a bow;

The dame said, “Your servant,”

The dog said, “Bow-wow.”
