Lyrics of Songs and Poems

I was talking to DH tonight about a song that I haven't heard in a long time! He has never heard--There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!!! Anyway, I thought that I would share the lyrics to that song here.
Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I dunno why she swallowed that fly,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and wiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that 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 wriggled and jiggled and wiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll die

There was 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 wiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that 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
That wriggled and jiggled and wiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a goat.
Just opened her throat and swallowed a 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 wiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that 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 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 wiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
But I dunno why she swallowed that fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse -
She's dead, of course.



Do you have some song or poem lyrics that you want to share?

Does anyone else have any song lyrics that they want to share?

Here's another one that's kinda absurd. It is sung to the tune of, "Joy To The World."

The Frog Is Dead

Joy to the world, the frog is dead.
They bar-be-qued his head.
What happened to his body?
They flushed it down the potty.
And round and round it goes,
and round and round it goes
and where e're is stops nobody knows.

My parents sang this to me and I to my kids
This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went...
"Wee wee wee" all the way home...

I love the answer-back songs... Does anyone remember:

"And the Green Grass Grows All Around, All Around, and the Green Grass Grows All Around"?

I've probably sung this song a million times with my son and Barney! LOL!!!

I had to look it up to find Barney singing it. My ds says that he doesn't remember it at all. At the time, he had the BIGGGEST crush on Min and Kristin on Barney's show.

Barney came over here probably long after he started in the US so we didn't see much of him as the boys were older then. ..... But I do remember the song.

... going on kids songs my youngest was into bananas in pyjamas in a big way so it was always,
Bananas in pyjamas are coming down the stairs,
Bananas in pyjamas are coming down in pairs,
Bananas in pyjamas are chasing teddy bears,
'cos on Tuesdays they all try to catch them unawares!

He had one huge blow up B1 that was actually taller than him at around 18-24months LOL
