 There was a lady named Sadie
So sweet was she
She hugged everyone she met
No matter who they be

She hugged the butcher, the baker
The candlestick maker
She hugged the gardener,  the post man
the man in the van

She hugged the dog,  the cat
the man in the hat
The bus driver,  the diver
 Her neighbor's  little brat

 So when I passed by the old oak tree
And  saw her waiting patiently
 I knew that  sweet Sadie
Was saving her best hug for me
