When the sun comes up on Easter Day, Folks dressed in new outfits will be on display. Little Jane’s bright yellow dress has a big white bow, Her new shoes hurt but she won’t let her pain show. Brother Jimmy’s new suit is a young boy’s worst fear, He much rather dress in casual jeans type of gear. Mom bought a new outfit its two shades of pink, Dad saw how she looked and gave her a wink. The hand colored eggs have been hidden from view, The children will find them in the grass wet with dew. They each have a huge Easter basket to hold all their loot, Jimmy can’t wait to change out of his Easter Day suit. Jelly beans and chocolate Easter bunnies the children desire, Mom hid them out of sight just under the wire. Jane’s Easter basket is full, but not her tummy, The ham’s on the table and it sure looks yummy. Little brother heads to the kitchen to peak in the pans, But mother yells just in time – please wash your hands. The family sits down for Easter Day dinner, Mom thinks the yams will be a sure fire winner. The green beans and carrots are passed plate to plate, The kids want to eat until Dad says – not yet please wait. I had my own Easter basket filled to the brim, But my husband found it so I gave it to him. He ate most of the goodies except for just one, He saved me the chocolate bunny, Happy Easter everyonel.

OLD MOTHER HUBBARD

Old Mother Hubbard Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard To give her poor dog a bone, But when she got there, the cupboard was bare, And so the poor dog had none. She went to the baker’s To buy him some bread, But when she came back The poor dog was dead. She went to the joiner’s To buy him a coffin, But when she came back The poor dog was laughin’. She took a clean dish To get him some tripe, But when she came back He was smoking a pipe. She went to the alehouse To get him some beer, But when she came back The dog sat in her chair. She went to the tavern For wine white and red, But when she came back The dog stood on his head. She went to the hatter’s To buy him a hat, But when she came back He was feeding the cat. She went to the barber’s To buy him a wig, But when she came back He was dancing a jig. She 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. She went to the cobbler’s To buy him some shoes, But when she came back He was reading the news. She went to the sempster’s 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. The dame made a curtsy, The dog made a bow, The dame said, “Your servant,” The dog said, “Bow-wow.” Minnie
