Song Appreciation: A Hole in the Bucket by Harry Belafonte

Harry Belafonte – 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, a hole

Go fix it dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Go 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, dear Liza, dear Liza
The straw is too long, dear Liza, too long

Cut it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Oh, cut it, dear Henry, dear Henry, cut it

With what shall I cut it? Dear Liza, dear Liza
With what shall I cut it? Dear Liza, with what?

With an axe, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
With an axe, dear Henry, dear Henry, with an axe

The axe is too dull, dear Liza, dear Liza
The axe is too dull, dear Liza, too dull

Sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Well, sharpen it, dear Henry, dear Henry, hone it

On what shall I sharpen it? Dear Liza, dear Liza
On what shall I hone it? Dear Liza, on what?

On a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
On a stone, dear Henry, dear Henry, on a stone

But the stone is too dry, dear Liza, dear Liza
The stone is too dry, dear Liza, too dry

Well, wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Well, wet it, dear Henry, dear Henry, wet it

With what shall I wet it? Dear Liza, dear Liza
With what shall I wet it? Dear Liza, with what?

Try water, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Try water, dear Henry, dear Henry, use water

In what shall I fetch it? Dear Liza, dear Liza
In what shall I fetch it? Dear Liza, in what?

In a bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
In a bucket, dear Henry, dear Henry, in a bucket

There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza
There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole
