In ancient Russia where the north wild blows,
Long, long ago--so the legend goes--
Lived the peasant Babushka in a tidy house,
Alone, except for a little brown mouse.
One evening Babushka made brown bread dough
To bake when the coals were a rosy glow.
When the dough in the oven baked into bread,
Babushka ate supper and went to bed.
