Toby (interrupts): Why did they fetch a pail of water, Mummy?

Mummy: They probably needed it to water the garden, or cook dinner or something. (sings) Jack fell down and broke his crown

Toby(interrupts): How did he break his crown Mummy? And why was he wearing a crown? Is it his birthday?

Mummy: Crown is another word for head in this song, sweetheart. And he bumped his head when he fell down the hill. (sings) And Jill came tumbling after. (waits for question…) (Relieved that question didn’t come) Up Jack got and home did trot…

Toby (interrupts): Why did he trot, Mummy?

Mummy (suffocates Toby with pillow).
