lyrics

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to fetch her poor dog a bone
But when she got there the cupboard was bare. She said, “It’s time to make soup from a stone.”
So she went out back ‘n’ found three round rocks and scrubbed ‘em good and clean
She filled a pot of water and put it on the fire and dropped those rocks right in

Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
We’ll stir it up together and serve it up hot
If we each bring a little we’ll all have a lot
Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
Come on everybody make yourselves at home

Jack and Jill tumbled down the hill to see what was going on
”Herbs & spice would be quite nice to bring out the taste of the stone.”
Jack came back with pepper and salt. Jill brought parsley and thyme
Little Boy Blue brought savoury, too. And the soup started smelling fine

Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
We’ll stir it up together and serve it up hot
If we each bring a little we’ll all have a lot
Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
Come on everybody make yourselves at home

Humpty Dumpty jumped from the wall and landed on his feet
He asked Mother Hubbard what he could do. She said “Carrots would make the broth sweet.”
Mary, Mary quite contrary had a nice garden you know
She brought some potatoes, ripe red tomatoes and onions right outta the row

Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
We’ll stir it up together and serve it up hot
If we each bring a little we’ll all have a lot
Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
Come on everybody make yourselves at home

Next thing you know everybody was there dropping veggies into the pot
Garden green beans, garlic and peas and cold, crunchy celery stalks
Hey diddle diddle the cat played the fiddle the cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such soup and everybody grabbed a spoon

Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
We’ll stir it up together and serve it up hot
If we each bring a little we’ll all have a lot
Stone soup Stone soup! Soup from a stone Soup from a stone!
Come on everybody make yourselves at home
