Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
To get her poor doggie a bone,
But when she got there the cupboard was bare
And so the poor doggie had none.
She went to the baker's to buy him some bread,
But when she came back the poor dog was dead.

So, hurry if you would: we need to be
There to pick up Hubbard's doggie by two.
Just put on your coat:
There's so much we must do.
Console a poor woman in grief
Endure a stench beyond belief
Back in the house of Old Mother Hubbard, again.

Old Mother Hubbard's been crying so hard
She's afraid she might drown in her tears.
She couldn't find a way to let go of the dog
Who had been her best friend all those years.
She went to the joiner's to buy him a coffin
But when she came back, the poor dog was laughin'

So, hurry if you would: we need to be
There to help feed Hubbard's doggie by two.
Just put on your coat, there's so much we must do.
Pick up some dog food, and then
Head off to Hubbard's again,
Back to the house of Old Mother Hubbard, once more.

Old Mother Hubbard sets out each day
On a path made of rubble and bricks,
Each day she returns, and her doggie shows off
Doing one of his fabulous tricks:
She took him a clean dish to get him some tripe
When she came back, he was smoking a pipe.
So, hurry if you would: we need to be
Ready to set up our cameras by one
Just put on your coat, there's so much to be done.
Perhaps she will buy him a wig.
Perhaps he'll be dancing a jig.
We're taking some pictures of Old Mother Hubbard, again.

Old Mother Hubbard has been very sad
Since her son L. Ron slipped a few cogs.
The only enjoyment she gets now in life
Is the time that she spends with her dog.
This wonderful Dog is Dame Hubbardıs delight
He can sing, he can dance, he can read, he can write.
So, hurry if you would: we need to be
There to shoot scenes for the movie by two.
Just put on your coat, there's so much we must do.
This dog is the smartest by far
We're certain he'll be a big star
When we film the movie of Old Mother Hubbard.
It's gonna be groovy with Old Mother Hubbard.
We're making a movie of Old Mother Hubbard, again.
