Kids Love Nursery Songs

Old Woman in a Blanket

There was an old woman tossed up in a blanket,

Seventeen times as high as the moon;

Where she was going I could not but ask it,

For in her hand she carried a broom.

“Old woman, old woman, old woman,” quoth I;

“O whither, O whither, O whither so high?”

“To sweep the cobwebs from the sky,

And I’ll be with you by-and-by!”
