Lyrics for 'There Was An Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe
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;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
Marjorie Ainsworth Decker published a Christian version of There Was An Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe in her "The Christian Mother Goose Book" (1978).
There was an old woman
Who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children,
And loved them all, too.
She said, "Thank you Lord Jesus,
For sending them bread."
Then kissed them all gladly
and sent them to bed.
