Thread Name: Lyr Req: My baby got washed down the plughole
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My baby got washed down the plughole
A Mother was bathing her baby one night
The yongest of ten and a poor little mite
The mother was poor and the baby was thin
It was only a skeleton covered with skin.
?

The mother turned 'round for the soap from the rack,
'Twas only a moment but when she looked back.
The baby was gone and in anguish, she cried,
"Oh, Where is my baby?
amd the Angels replied,

"Your baby has gone down the Plug hole"
Your Baby has gone down the Plug"
The poor little thing was so skinny and thin"
"He should have been washed in a ju-u-u-u-ug"
Your baby is perfectly happy, and he wont need a bath, no more"
"He suffered no pain as he slid down the drain
"Not lost, but gone before".

This version is a lot neater than the one in the Digitrad I learned it from Wally Whyton of the "Vipers Skiffle Group".
Melody is, "oNLY A BIRD IN A GILDED CAGE"
