Subject: 'said Charlie boy one day'
Date: 22 Mar 99 - 12:47 PM

Want to surprise grandmother with music, title and words to a lullabye she partially recalls her own mother singing to her. Reach back and help me make a 93 year old happy. Other phrases she recalls are: "and kitty too where has she gone" "they've taken her away". Any help appreciated. One person suggested contacting -- I keep getting a FATAL ERROR message. Can anyone come up with a current address for this site?

Please help. Grandma won't last forever.

I hope this hasn't come too late--

From The Normal Second Reader by Albert Newton Raub (Philadelphia: Porter & Coates, 1878):


1. "WHERE has my little basket gone?"
Said Charlie, boy, one day;
"I guess some little boy or girl
Has taken it away.

2. "And Kitty, too, where has she gone?
Oh, dear! what shall I do?
I wish I could my basket find,
And little Kitty, too.

3. "I'll go to mother's room and look,
Perhaps she may be there,
'Cause Kitty likes to take a nap
In mother's easy chair.

4 "Oh, mother! mother! come and look!
See what a little heap!
My Kitty's in the basket here,
All cuddled down to sleep."

5. He took the basket carefully,
And brought it quickly in,
And showed it to his mother dear,
With little Kitty in.

6. But little Kitty soon awoke,
And, looking all about,
Began to purr and then to stretch,
And very soon hopped out.

Well, either you're going to make a 103-year-old very happy or... er, not.
