There's a Hole in the Bucket

There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza
There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, there's a hole.
     Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
     Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it.

With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, dear Liza
With what shall I fix it, dear Liza, with what?
     With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
     With a straw, dear Henry, dear Henry, with a straw.

But the straw is too long etc.
     Then cut it, etc.

With what shall I cut it?
     With an axe

The axe is too dull
     Then sharpen it

With what shall I sharpen it?
     With a stone

The stone is too dry
     Then wet it

With what shall I wet it?
     With water

How shall I get it?
     In the bucket

Theres a hole in the bucket.

Note: one of the surprisingly rare circular songs, along with
     Where Have All the Flowers Gone and Rattling Bog and John
