Song: There Was An Old Woman
This is one of my favorite Mother Goose songs! I just love the imagery and the gorgeous melody.
There Was An Old Woman
There was an old woman tossed up in a basket,
Seventeen times as high as the moon.
Where she was going, I couldn't but ask it,
For in her hand she carried a broom.
"Old woman, old woman, old woman," quoth I,
"Where are you going to, up so high?"
"To brush the cobwebs from the sky."
"May I go with you?" "Aye, by and by."
