I Knew An Old Lady


I knew an old lady who
swallowed a fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die

I knew an old lady who swallowed a spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed a spider to catch the Fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die

I knew an old lady who swallowed a Bird
How absurd, to swallow a bird
She swallowed a bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die
I knew an old lady who swallowed a cat
Imagine that, she swallowed a cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed a bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die
I knew 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 a bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die
I knew an old lady who swallowed a goat
She opened her throat and swallowed the goat
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed a bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die
I knew an old lady who swallowed a cow
I don't know how she swallowed the cow
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed a bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don't know why she swallowed the fly
Perhaps she'll die
I knew an old lady who swallowed a horse
She's dead of course
