[D] [G] The mother was poor and the baby was thin; [A] [D] A 'Twas naught but a skeleton covered with skin. [D] [G] The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack. [A] [D] A She was only a moment but when she turned back [D] [G] Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried, [A] [D] A "Oh, where has my baby gone?" The angels replied: [D] [G] Oh, your baby has gone down the plug hole. [A] [D] Your baby has gone down the plug. G G7 D B7 The poor little thing was so skinny and thin, [E7] A A7 He should have been washed in a jug, in a jug. [D] [G] Your baby is perfectly happy; [A] [D] He won't need a bath anymore.
