There came a girl from France
Who didn’t know how to dance
The only thing that she could do
Was knees up Mother Brown.
Oh, knees up Mother Brown
Knees up Mother Brown
Knees up, knees up, never let the breeze up,
Knees up Mother Brown.

Oh, hopping on one foot
Hopping on one foot
Hopping, Hopping, never stopping
Hopping on one foot.

Oh, prancing up and down
Prancing up and down
Prancing, prancing, never dancing,
Prancing up and down.

And whirling round and round
Whirling round and round
Whirling, whirling, never twirling,
Whirling round and round.
