8月3日 Old Mother Hubbard ハバードばあさん

Old Mother Hubbard

Went to the cupboard

To get her poor dog a bone

But when she came 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

The poor dog was dead

 

She went to the joiner's

To buy him a coffin

But when she came back

The poor dog was laughing

 

She took a clean dish

To get him some tripe

But when she came back

He was smoking a pipe

 

She went to the fishmonger's

To buy him some fish

And when she came back

He was washing the dish

 

She went to the alehouse

To get him some beer

But when she came back

The dog sat in a chair

 

She went to the tavern

For white wine and red

But when she came back

The dog stood on his head

 

She went to the hatter's

To buy him a hat

But when she came back

He was feeding the cat

 

She went to the barber's

To buy him a wig

But when she came back

He was dancing a jig

 

She went to the fruiterer's

To buy him some fruit

But when she came back

He was playing the flute

 

She went to the tailor's

To buy him a coat

But when she came back

He was riding a goat

 

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 sempstress

To buy him some linen

But when she came back

The dog was spinning

 

She went to the hosier's

To buy him some hose

But when she came back

He was dress'd in his clothes

 

The dame made a curtsy

The dog made a bow

The dame said, Your servant

The dog said, Bow, wow
