The Old Woman In The Basket
: MOTHER GOOSE SONGS AND STORIES
: Boys And Girls Bookshelf
There was an old woman tossed up in a basket,
Nineteen 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,
O whither, O whither, O whither so high?"
"To brush the cobwebs off the sky!"
"Shall I go with thee?" "Aye, by-and-by."
