Show Excerpt

went to the fruiterer's To buy him some fruit, But when she came back He was playing the flute.

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

[Illustration: THE DOG PLAYING THE FLUTE.]

[Illustration: THE DOG SPINNING.]

She went to the sempstress To buy him some linen, But when she came back The Dog was a-spinning.

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

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

The Dame made a curtsey, The Dog made a bow; The Dame said, "Your servant;" The Dog said, "Bow-wow!"

[Illustration: THE DOG READING THE NEWS.]

[Illustration: THE DOG MADE A BOW.]

This wonderful Dog Was Dame Hubbard's delight; He could sing, he could dance, He could read, he could write.

So she gave him rich dainties Whenever he fed, And erected a monument When he was dead.
