There Was an Old Woman Who Lived In a Shoe is a Mother Goose nursery rhyme from Richard Scarry's Best Sing-Along Mother Goose Video Ever.

Old Woman lives in a shoe. She has so many bunny children but she doesn't know what to do. So she gives them some broth without any bread and kisses them soundly and put them to bed. One of her children in named Betsy, which the Old Woman mistakes as Bonnie. Old Woman orders all of her little children to have some rest. Emperor Huckle is not one of her children, because he is a cat. He asks the Old Woman if she's seen Lowly. She hasn't. But she thinks that he's one of her children. Emperor Huckle don't think so, because Lowly is a worm. She tells him to go the town square and ask Wee Willie Winkie who knows where everybody is.

Lyrics Edit

There was an old woman

Who lived in a shoe

She had so many children

She didn't know what to do

She gave them some broth

Without any bread

And kissed them all soundly

And put them to bed

She gave them some broth

Without any bread

And kissed them all soundly

And put them to bed
