Nursery Rhyme Monday – Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To fetch 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 fishmonger’s
To buy him some fish;
But when she came back,
He was licking the dish.

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 cobbler’s
To buy him some shoes;
But when she came back,
He was reading the news!

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

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

The dame made a curtsey,
The dog made a bow.
The dame said “Your servant”,
The dog said “Bow-wow”.
