There was an old lady who swallowed a fly


Lyrics

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider
That wriggled and wiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird
How absurd to swallow a bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat
Fancy that to swallow a cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog
What a hog, to swallow a dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow
She swallowed the cow to catch the dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse…
She’s dead, of course!
