THERE'S A HOLE IN THE BUCKET

There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, there's a hole.
Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza
With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, with what?
With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, with a straw.

But the straw is too long etc.
Then cut it, etc.

With what shall I cut it?
With an axe

The axe is too dull
Then sharpen it

With what shall I sharpen it?
With a stone

The stone is too dry
Then wet it

With what shall I wet it?
With water

How shall I get it?
In the bucket

Theres a hole in the bucket.

Note: one of the surprisingly rare circular songs, along with
Where Have All the Flowers Gone and Rattling Bog and John
