The lyrics originally published in 1805 have remained largely unchanged.
1819 UK depiction
1889 US depiction

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard,
To give the poor dog a bone;
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;
When she came back
The dog was dead!

She went to the undertaker's
To buy him a coffin;
When she came back
The dog was laughing.

She took a clean dish
to get him some tripe;
When she came back
He was smoking his pipe.

She went to the alehouse
To get him some beer;
When she came back
The dog sat in a chair.

She went to the tavern
For white wine and red;
When she came back
The dog stood on his head.

She went to the fruiterer's
To buy him some fruit;
When she came back
He was playing the flute.

She went to the tailor's
To buy him a coat;
When she came back
He was riding a goat.

She went to the hatter's
To buy him a hat;
When she came back
He was feeding her cat.

She went to the barber's
To buy him a wig
When she came back
He was dancing a jig.

She went to the cobbler's
To buy him some shoes;
When she came back
He was reading the news.

She went to the sempstress
To buy him some linen;
When she came back
The dog was spinning.

She went to the hosier's
To buy him some hose;
When she came back
He was dressed in his clothes.

The Dame made a curtsy,
The dog made a bow;
The Dame said, Your servant;
The dog said, Bow-wow.

This wonderful dog
Was Dame Hubbard's delight,
He could read, he could dance,
He could sing, he could write;
She gave him rich dainties
Whenever he fed,
And erected this monument
When he was dead.[1]

I'd say Old Mother Hubbard was persistant.

Changes that come from aging are the unavoidable ones. They are seldom positive, and that is why we must continue to do all we can to lessen those changes...eating, exercise, positive outlook.

Jeanne: me too!
It reminds me of one of Elvis' first movies. There were little twin boys. The smarter one would share the chocolate bar by breaking it very unevenly on purpose then bite off the longer piece to make them even and that would make the other brother (poor little thing) happy. :)

Optimist and skeptic at the same time? Sure! I'm optimistic that things will work out while at the same time expecting that they may not but I'm optimistic that if they don't work out, that I will figure out how to manage. Maybe that's an optimistic-pessimist? Or vice versa???
