Mother Goose Rhymes
There was an old lady
printer friendly version
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 tiggled 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;
How about that,
she swallowed 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
that 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 died, of course!
