Isabel met an enormous bear
bear was hungry,bear was ravenous
bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you
Isabel, Isabel, she didn't worry
Washed her hands straightened her hair up

Isabel met a wicked old witch
witch's gums with teeth were sprinkled
I'll turn you into an ugly toad
Isabel didn't scream or scurry
turned the witch into milk and drank her

Isabel so self reliant
One eye in the middle of his forehead
I'll grind your bones and make my bread
Isabel didn't scream or scurry
When it was gone, she cut the giant's head off
Isabel met a troublesome doctor
doctor's talk was of coughs and chills
doctor said wow Isabel
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry

Then Isabel cured the doctor, yeah, oh yeah
