Old Mother Hubbard,
She went to the cupboard,
What did she go there for?

Waltz: Bones, bow-wow, bones, bow-wow…
She went to get her doggie a bone, bow-wow,
bone for the little bow-wow-wow-wow.

Sold again was old mother Hubbard,
The lady that went to the cupboard,
And sold was the poor little dog,
who didn't receive any bone. Bow wow.
How sad, you poor little dog. Bow wow.
Oh poor little dog,
who didn't receive any bone. Bow, wow, wow.
