THERE’S A HOLE IN MY BUCKET

There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza!

There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole!

Then mend it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

Then mend it dear Henry, dear Henry, mend it!

With what shall I mend it, dear Liza, dear Liza?

With what shall I mend it, dear Liza, with what?

With  straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

With  straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, a straw!

But the straw is too long, dear Liza, dear Liza!

But the straw is too long, dear Liza, too long!

Then cut it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

Then cut it, dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it!

With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, dear Liza?

With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, with what?

With a knife, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

With a knife, dear Henry, dear Henry, a knife!

But the knife is too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza!

But the knife is too dull, dear Liza, too dull!

Then sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

Then sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, sharpen it!

With what shall I sharpen it, dear Liza, dear Liza?

With what shall I sharpen it, dear Liza, with what?

With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, a stone!

But the stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza!

But the stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry!

Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it!

With what shall I wet it, dear Liza, dear Liza?

With what shall I wet it, dear Liza, with what?

With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, water!

But where shall I get it, dear Liza, dear Liza?

But where shall I get it, dear Liza, but where?

From the well, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

From the well, dear Henry, dear Henry, the well!

In what shall I carry it, dear Liza, dear Liza?

In what shall I carry it, dear Liza, in what?

In the bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry!

In the bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, the bucket!

BUT THERE’S A HOLE IN MY BUCKET, DEAR LIZA, DEAR LIZA!

THERE’S A HOLE IN MY BUCKET, DEAR LIZA, A HOLE!
