Here's one I like from an old "Cream" album.
The Mother's Lament
A mother was washing her baby one night,
the youngest of ten and a delicate mite.
The mother turned 'round for the soap on the rack.
She was only a moment but when she turned back,
her baby was gone and in anguish she cried,
"Oh where has my baby gone?"
The angles replied,
"Oh.... Your baby has gone down the scupper.
Your baby has gone down the plug.
The poor little 'fin was so skinny and thin
'e shoulda been washed in a jug. (In a jug)"
"Oh, your baby is perfectly 'appy
'e won't need a bath any more.
'e's a mucking it up with the angles above.
Not lost. But but gone before."
