We Need A Ship!

There's A Hole In My Bucket

The famous dialogue between Henry and Liza: Liza (Rebecca Leivers) gets ever more frustrated by poor Henry (Chris White (of The Kinx)) who eventually turns the tables and gets his own way. Some lovely smooth horns and trumpet from Peter Kalff complement this Nursery Rhyme Collection version of this classic perfectly.

To listen to the audio sample you need a current Flash Player



This version is available on the double album The Nursery Rhyme Collection 1


                 

There's A Hole In My Bucket
There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

Then mend it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then mend it dear Henry, dear Henry, mend it.

With what should I mend it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I mend it, dear Liza, with what?

With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, a straw.

The straw is too long, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The straw is too long, dear Liza, too long.

Then cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then cut it dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it!

With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what shall I cut it, dear Liza, with what?

With an knife, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With an knife, dear Henry, an axe.

The knife is too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The knife is too dull, dear Liza, too dull.

Then, sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then sharpen it dear Henry, dear Henry, sharpen it!

With what should I sharpen it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I sharpen, dear Liza, with what?

With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, a stone.

The stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza,
The stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry.

Then wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then wet it dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it.

With what should I wet it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what should I wet it, dear Liza, with what?

With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
With water, dear Henry, dear Henry, water.

In what shall I carry it?, dear Liza, dear Liza,
In shall I carry it?, dear Liza, in what?

In the bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
In the bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, in the bucket!

Argh! But there's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole!
