There Was An Old Lady Nursery Rhyme Lyrics

 

Description:

“There Was an Old Lady” is a children’s rhyme and song of a kind known as cumulative. The song tells the story of an old woman who swallowed increasingly large animals, each to catch the previously swallowed animal. There are many variations of phrasing in the lyrics, especially for the description of swallowing each animal. The spider and fly are described in each verse, but the other animals are only described when they are introduced starting with the bird.

 

Lyrics to “There Was an Old Lady”

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

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
That wiggled and jiggled and squiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly, but
I don’t know why she swallowed the 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
That wiggled and jiggled and squiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly, but
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly.
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat.
Imagine that, to swallow a cat!
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird.
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog.
What a hog to swallow a dog !
There was an old lady who swallowed a cow.
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow.
There was an old lady who swallowed a horse.
She died, of course.
