  • Song Lyrics:
    I know an old lady who swallowed a fly
    I don't know why she swallowed the fly
    Perhaps she'll die

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

    I know an old lady who swallowed a bird
    How absurd to swallow a bird
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
    But I don't know why she swallowed the fly
    Perhaps she'll die

    I know an old lady who swallowed a cat
    Imagine that. She swallowed a cat.
    She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
    But I don't know why she swallowed that fly
    Perhaps she'll die

    I know 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
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
    But I don't know why she swallowed that fly
    Perhaps she'll die

    I know an old lady who swallowed a goat
    Opened her throat and down went 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 the bird to catch the spider
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
    But I don't know why she swallowed that fly
    Perhaps she'll die

    I know 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 the bird to catch the spider
    That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
    But I don't know why she swallowed that fly
    Perhaps she'll die

    I know an old lady who swallowed a horse
    She's dead of course!
