Miss Lucy had a baby,
She named him Tiny Tim,
She put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water,
He ate a bar of soap,
He tried to eat the bathtub,
But it wouldn’t go down his throat.

Miss Lucy called the doctor,
Miss Lucy called the nurse,
Miss Lucy called the lady
With the alligator purse.

In came the doctor,
In came the nurse,
In came the lady
With the alligator purse.

“Mumps,” said the doctor,
“Measles,” said the nurse,
“Chicken pox,” said the lady
With the alligator purse.

Out went the doctor,
Out went the nurse,
Out went the lady
with the alligator purse.
