Merchant, Natalie - Adventures Of Isabel Lyrics




Isabel met an enormous bear
Isabel, Isabel, she didn't care
bear was hungry,bear was ravenous
bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous
bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you
How do, Isabel, now I'll eat you
Isabel, Isabel, she didn't worry
Isabel didn't scream or scurry
Washed her hands straightened her hair up
Then Isabel ate the bear up

Once in a night black as pitch
Isabel met a wicked old witch
witch's face was cross and wrinkled
witch's gums with teeth were sprinkled
Ho, ho, Isabel! old witch crowed
I'll turn you into an ugly toad
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry
Isabel didn't scream or scurry
showed no rage,showed no rancor
turned the witch into milk and drank her
Oh yeah,

Isabel!!!

Isabel met a hideous giant
Isabel so self reliant
giant was hairy,giant horrid
One eye in the middle of his forehead
morning, Isabel,giant said
I'll grind your bones and make my bread
Isabel, Isabel, she didn't worry
Isabel didn't scream or scurry
nibbled on his zwieback that she fed off
When it was gone, she cut the giant's head off

Isabel!!!

Isabel met a troublesome doctor
punched and poked till he really shocked her
doctor's talk was of coughs and chills
doctor's satchel bulged with pills
doctor said wow Isabel
Swallow this, it will make you well
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry
Isabel didn't scream or scurry

Took those pills from the pill concocter
Then Isabel cured the doctor, yeah, oh yeah

    The Adventures of Isabel by Ogden Nash
    Isabel met an enormous bear,
    Isabel, Isabel, didn't care;
    The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,
    The bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous.
    The bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you,
    How do, Isabel, now I'll eat you!
    Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry.
    Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
    She washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,
    Then Isabel quietly ate the bear up.
    Once in a night as black as pitch
    Isabel met a wicked old witch.
    the witch's face was cross and wrinkled,
    The witch's gums with teeth were sprinkled.
    Ho, ho, Isabel! the old witch crowed,
    I'll turn you into an ugly toad!
    Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,
    Isabel didn't scream or scurry,
    She showed no rage and she showed no rancor,
    But she turned the witch into milk and drank her.
    Isabel met a hideous giant,
    Isabel continued self reliant.
    The giant was hairy, the giant was horrid,
    He had one eye in the middle of his forhead.
    Good morning, Isabel, the giant said,
    I'll grind your bones to make my bread.
    Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,
    Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
    She nibled the zwieback that she always fed off,
    And when it was gone, she cut the giant's head off.
    Isabel met a troublesome doctor,
    He punched and he poked till he really shocked her.
    The doctor's talk was of coughs and chills
    And the doctor's satchel bulged with pills.
    The doctor said unto Isabel,
    Swallow this, it will make you well.
    Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,
    Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
    She took those pills from the pill concocter,
    And Isabel calmly cured the doctor.
