No One At Home

No One At Home Lyrics

No one at home in the hen-house, 

And no one at home in the barn, 

Old Brindle has gone to the neighbor's 

To borrow a skein of brown yarn, 

To borrow yarn for the darning of socks 

For her wee spotted calf.


The little rollicking rascal 

Has never enough by half. 

And Speckle is down by the willow 

Washing her chicks in the lake, 

While old Daddy Cockle is lying 

Abed with a bad toothache.
