Stone Soup
Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Andrew Queen and Karen Stille

This song is available on Andrew Queen's GROW

This song is also available on Andrew Queen's Fairy Tales Volume 2

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to fetch her poor dog a bone
But when she got there the cupboard was bare.
She said, “It’s time to make soup from a stone”
So she went out back and found three round rocks
and scrubbed ‘em good and clean
She filled a pot of water, put it on the fire and dropped those rocks right in

Stone soup! Soup from a stone!
Stir it up together and serve it up hot
If we each bring a little we’ll all have a lot
Stone soup! Soup from a stone!
Come on everybody make yourselves at home

Jack and Jill tumbled down the hill to see what was going on
“Herbs & spice would be quite nice to bring out the taste of the stone”
Jack came back with pepper and salt. Jill brought parsley and thyme
Little Boy Blue brought savoury, too. And the soup started smelling fine

Humpty Dumpty jumped down from the wall and landed on his feet
He asked Mother Hubbard what he could do.
She said, “Carrots would make the broth sweet”
Mary, Mary quite contrary had a nice garden you know
She brought some potatoes, ripe red tomatoes and onions out of the row

Next thing you know everybody was there dropping veggies into the pot
Garden green beans, garlic and peas and cold, crunchy celery stalks
Hey diddle diddle the cat played the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such SOUP and everybody grabbed a spoon
