MISS SUSIE

MISS SUSIE HAD A BABY,
SHE NAMED HIM TINY TIM,
SHE PUT HIM IN THE BATHTUB,
TO SEE IF HE COULD SWIM.

HE DRANK UP ALL THE WATER,
HE ATE UP ALL THE SOAP,
HE TRIED TO EAT THE BATHTUB,
BUT IT WOULDN'T GO DOWN HIS THROAT.

MISS SUSIE CALLED THE DOCTOR,
THE DOCTOR CALLED THE NURSE,
THE NURSE CALLED THE LADY,
WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.

IN WALKED THE DOCTOR,
IN WALKED THE NURSE,
IN WALKED HE LADY,
WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.

MUMPS SAID THE DOCTOR,
MUMPS SAID THE NURSE,
MUMPS SAID THE LADY,
WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE. MM[

OUT WALKED THE NURSE,
OUT WALKED THE LADY,
WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
