"Go Tell Aunt Rhody"


       
   
1.
Go tell Aunt Rhody,
Go tell Aunt Rhody,
Go tell Aunt Rhody,
The old gray goose is dead.
       
    2. The one she's been saving,
The one she's been saving,
The one she's been saving,
To make a feather bed.
       
    3. She died in the mill pond,
She died in the mill pond,
She died in the mill pond,
Standing on her head.
       
    4. She left nine little goslin's,
She left nine little goslin's,
She left nine little goslin's,
To scratch for their own bread.


     
    5. The goslings are crying,
The goslings are crying,
The goslings are crying,
Because their mother's dead.
       
    6. The gander is weeping,
The gander is weeping,
The gander is weeping,
Because his wife is dead.
