Hi. I think these are the words to Storybook Ball (from Kweskin's ablum).

Up in Mother Goose's book up in the nursery;
Simple Simon says I'm feelin' sad;
Says Peter Piper's daughter so am I, I think we oughter
Do somethin' that will make the kiddies glad;

Smarty Marty says I think we'll have a party
And he calls on the Old Woman in the Shoe;
Well the cat he got his fiddle, And he played hy-diddle-diddle
And what happened next I'm gonna tell to you;

Peter Peter pumpkin eater had a wife and couldn't keep her at the ball, and in the hall,
Humpty Dumpty met her and he said I bet I'll get her and I'll make her fall and that's not all
Ol' King Cole, that merry old soul, Helped poor Mother Hubbard blow his big bank roll
Buyin' lollipops and pretties for kiddies at the Storybook Ball.
Doo Bitty Do Be Doo.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, brought 'em to the ball, and that's not all,
Tom Tom the piper's son, stole a pig and away he run, through the hall, what a squall,
Polly put the kettle on, the peas got cold, They had to eat the porridge that was nine days old
Jack fell down and broke his crown and spilled the water, he hadn't oughter

Little Jackie Horner eating pie in the corner, stuck in his thumb, pulled out a plumb
Little Missie Muffett sitting on her tuffet and she said "yum yum won't you gimme some?"
Little Georgie Porgie with his puddin' and pie, kissed Mary quite contrary and made her cry
Little Bo Peep, lost her sheep and couldn't find them, all their tails behind them.

Four and twenty blackbirds were baking in a pie and they refused to sing, anything
Now wasn't that an awful way for little birds to act before a king and queen, such a terrible thing
Said the Knave and the King to the Queen of Hearts, come on over here honey and bring some tarts,
So she did, and the kids had a picnic at the Storybook Ball,

Yes she did and the kids had a picnic at the Storybook Ball.
Doo Bitty Doo Be Do!
