MISS SUZY

MISS SUZY 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 SUZY CALLED THE DOCTOR, THE DOCTOR CALLED THE NURSE,
THE NURSE CALLED THE LADY WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
IN COMES THE DOCTOR, IN COMES THE NURSE,
IN COMES THE LADY WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
OUT GOES THE DOCTOR, OUT GOES THE NURSE,
IN STAYS THE LADY WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
HE DIDN'T LIKE THE DOCTOR, HE HATED THE NURSE,
BUT HE LOVED THE LADY WITH THE ALLIGATOR PURSE.
