Notes

Here"s a slightly different version from The tiny Mother Goose (1912), illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith:There was an old mrs who lived in a shoe,She had actually so countless children, she didn"t recognize what to do.She provided them some broth, without any kind of bread,She whipped them all around, and sent them to bed.William Wallace Denslow gives a kinder variation of this luck in his publication Denslow"s mom Goose (1901):There to be an old mrs who lived in a shoe,She had so many kids she didn"t know what to do;She gave them part broth with plenty the bread,She kissed them all fondly and sent them to bed.I think Denslow make this version up himself: i couldn"t find any type of reference to it in other sources and also his book likewise gives a less scary variation of Hush-a-bye baby on the Tree Top.
