Old Mother Hubbard

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Portrait (2003) and on the compilation album Swingin' Ella (2003).

Old Mother Hubbard
She went to the cupboard
To get a poor dog a bone
When she got there
The cupboard was bare
And the poor little dog had none

He sat on the mat
With his head on the mat
So hungry he wanted to cry
He barked Mother Hubbard and he barked, "Yoo-hoo!"
And looked her straight in the eye

"Doggone!", said the little dog
"That ain't the way to do
If you were hungry and wanted a bone
I'd find one somewhere for you!"

Old Mother Hubbard
She closed up the cupboard
And went out into the street
The little dog moaned
"If you can't get a bone
Hubbard, bring me some meat!"

"Fore chops, chicken, fish bones
Anything you see
Somewhere, somewhere in this wide wide world
There must be a bone for me!"

"Doggone!", said the little dog
"That ain't the way to do
If you were hungry and wanted a bone
I'd find one somewhere for you!"

"Find me a bone, any bone, any kind o' bone
You find anywhere, any place
Just as long as it is a bone and it has a piece o' meat
Mother Hubbard, bring me some meat!"
