OLD MOTHER HUBBARD traditional circa 1805 (various 20th century versions have additional music and/or lyrics attributed to Ellington / Wallace / Abbot / Crumit etc) as rec by Ella Fitzgerald (live) 1949 Carnegie Hall 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!". (scat) "Mother Hubbard, bring me that borzoi! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2012)
