Ged Fox Songs about ducks and geese (104* d) RE: Songs about ducks and geese 17 Jun 19


"Mrs Bond" as printed in "The Puffin Song Book", compiled by Leslie Woodgate, circa 1956.

'Oh, what have you got for dinner Mrs Bond?'
'There's beef in the larder and ducks in the pond.
Dilly dilly, dilly dilly, come and be killed,
For you must be stuff'd and my customers filled.'

'John Ostler, go, fetch me a duckling or two;
John Ostler, go, fetch me a duckling or two;
Cry dilly dilly, dilly dilly, come and be killed,
For you must be stuff'd and my customers filled.'

'I have been to the ducks that are swimming in the pond,
And they won't come in to be killed, Mrs Bond;
I cried dilly dilly, dilly dilly, come and be killed,
For you must be stuff'd and the customers filled.'

Mrs Bond she went down to the pond in a rage,
With plenty of onions and plenty of sage;
She cried, 'Come, little wag-tails, come, and be killed,
For you shall be stuff'd, and my customers filled.'
