1. Lucy had a baby,
She named him Tiny Tim.
She put him in the bathtub,
To see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water.
He ate up all the soap.
He tried to eat the bathtub,
But it wouldn’t go down his throat.
Lucy called the doctor.
The doctor called the nurse.
The nurse then called the lady
With the alligator purse.
I’m here called out the doctor,
I’m coming said the nurse,
All followed by the lady
With the alligator purse.
5. Mumps called out the doctor,
Measles called out the nurse,
But, nothing said the lady
With the alligator purse.
6. So, out then walked the doctor,
Then followed by the nurse,
All followed by the lady
With the alligator purse.
