Old Mrs. Lazibones

Written By: Gerda Mayer, Copyright Unknown

Old Mrs. Lazibones
And her dirty daughter
Never used soap
And never used water

Higgledy piggledy cowpat
What d'you think of that?

Daisies from their fingernails
Birds' nests in their hair-O
Dandelions from their ears
What a dirty pair-O!

Higgledy piggledy cowpat
What d'you think of that?

Came a prince who sought a bride
Riding past their doorstep
"Quick," said Mrs. Lazibones.
"Girl, under the water tap."

Higgledy piggledy cowpat
What d'you think of that?

Washed her up and washed her down
Then she washed her sideways
But the prince was far, far away
He'd ridden off on the highways

Higgledy piggledy cowpat
What d'you think of that?
