The Old Woman All Skin and Bones
There was an old woman All skin and bones All skin and bones was she M-m! M-m!

When she got to the old log style She tho’t she’d rest a little while M-m! M-m!
When she got to the old church door
She tho't she'd rest a little more M-m! M-m!

And spied a dead man on the ground M-m! M-m!
Then to the parson she turned and said Will I look that way when I am dead M-m! M-m!
Then to her the parson said, BOOH!!
