Lyrics

1. There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

(shorter version)

2. So fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
So fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

3. With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, with what?

4. With straw, dear Henry…
5. But the straw is too long, dear Liza…
6. Then cut it, dear Henry…
7. But the knife is too blunt, dear Liza…
8. Then sharpen it, dear Henry…
9. But the stone is too dry, dear Liza…
10. Then wet it, dear Henry…
11. There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza…

(longer version)

2. So fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
So fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

3. With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza,
With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, with what?

4. With straw, dear Henry…
5. But the straw is too long, dear Liza…
6. Then cut it, dear Henry…
7. With what shall I cut it, dear Liza…
8. With the knife, dear Henry…
9. But the knife is too blunt, dear Liza…
10. Then sharpen it, dear Henry…
11. With what shall I sharpen it, dear Liza…
12. With the stone, dear Henry…
13. But the stone is too dry, dear Liza…
14. Then wet it, dear Henry…
15. With what shall I wet it, dear Liza…
16. With water, dear Henry…
17. With what shall I carry it, dear Liza…
18. With the bucket, dear Henry…
19. But there’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza… !!
