Old Mother Hubbard

Watch and sing along to the traditional nursery song '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!

So 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 baker's to buy him some bread,
But when she came back he didn't want to be fed.
So Old Mother Hubbard went back to the cupboard,
To fetch her poor dog a bone.
And when she got there it was no longer bare,
And so she gave her poor dog...a bone!
