Song Description

A song about Mother Goose nursery rhymes.

Story Behind the Song

I was always fascinated by the political nature of Mother Goose nursery rhymes and the inference of crime in the lyrics. I wrote the song in 2003 and entered it in a contest, coming in second.

Lyrics



Trouble On The loose

A cat named Jack walked up a hill
His girlfriend Jill went with him
They found them lying
Next to a well
Busted heads, mighty grim

Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there committing crimes
Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there committing crimes
Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there
Trouble on the loose
Trouble on the loose

Three little mice blind as bats
Chasing after the farmer's wife
Well they found them
With cut off tails
They say they used a carving knife

Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there committing crimes
Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there committing crimes
Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there
Trouble on the loose
Trouble on the loose

Old man Dumpty on the top of a wall
Sitting there taking in the view
The next thing you know
He's all over the ground
The only clue was a bottle of glue

Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there committing crimes
Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there committing crimes
Something's going on
in the town of Rhymes
Someone out there
Trouble on the loose
Trouble on the loose

The people were frightened
They were really scared
Trouble on the loose
Trouble on the loose
The people were frightened
They were really scared
Trouble on the loose
Trouble on the loose
The people were frightened
They were really scared
It's time to call in Detective Goose
Trouble on the loose
Trouble on the loose

Well she sat right down with a pen in her hand
Began writing rhyming lines
She quickly solved every single crime
Now the town of Rhymes
Is feeling just fine
