Doctor Foster Went to Gloucester

Doctor Foster Went to Gloucester - Mama Lisa's House of English Nursery Rhymes, Intro Image


Doctor Foster went to Gloucester
In a shower of rain,
He stepped in a puddle,
Right up to his middle,
And never went there again.

Notes

Gloucester is pronounced as "gloster" and rhymes with Foster. The Real Mother Goose (published in 1916 and illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright) spells it as "Glo'ster" in their version.
