Lyrics

Miss Lucy had a baby.
His name was Tiny Tim.
She put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water.
He ate up all the 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.
"Mumps,' said the doctor.
"Measles,' said the nurse.
"Hiccups,' said the lady
With the alligator purse.
Out went the doctor.
Out went the nurse.
Out went the lady
With the alligator purse.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About The Lady With Alligator Purse

This song came from the book by the same name written in 1998.

The song and book are written for children from the ages of 2 to 5 years of age and were originally written for silly and nonsense reasons.

This book was written to be read aloud thus leading to making it a song to be sung out loud by teachers, parents, and children in the home or in the classroom.

This song can be used in the classroom for teaching of a few subjects. First, teaching nonsense is very important so that children can learn what is real and what is part of the nonsense and imagination. Secondly, the teacher can tell children what mumps, hiccups, and measles are. They are sang about in the song, but not really explained. The teachers and parents can do all of the teaching.

This can also be a lesson about animals all beginning with an alligator. The teacher can have pictures ready of different animals so children can describe them to the teacher and each other.

Shorter version

Miss Suzy had a baby, she named him Tiny Tim
She stuck him in a bathtub to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water
He ate up all the soap
He tried to eat the bathtub but it wouldn't fit down his throat
Miss Suzy called the doctor
The doctor called the nurse
The nurse called the lady with the alligator purse.

Longer version

Miss Lucy had a baby, his name was Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water
He ate up all the 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
"Nonsense" said the lady with the alligator purse.

"Penicillin" said the doctor
"Castor Oil" said the nurse
"Pizza!' said the lady with the alligator purse.

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