Lyrics

There was an old woman tossed up in a blanket
Seventeen times as high as the moon.
But where she was going, no mortal could tell it,
For under her arm, she carried a broom.
"Old woman, old woman, old woman,' quoth I,
"Whither, ah whither, ah whither so high?"
"To sweep the cobwebs from the sky".
"May I come with you?"
"Aye, by and by".

There was an old woman tossed up in a basket
Ninety-nine times as high as the moon.
What she did there I could not but ask it
For in each hand she carried a broom.

"Old woman, old woman, old woman,' said I
"Where are you going to up so high?"
"To sweep the cobwebs from the sky
And you may come with me if you can fly".
