I know an old lady
She swallowed a fly
But I don't know why
She swallow the fly

- I guess she'll die

I know an old lady
Who swallow a spider
It wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her

She swallowed a spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed the fly

- I guess she'll die

I know and old lady
Who swallowed a bird
Isn't that ubsurd
To swallow a bird?

She swallowed the bird
To catch the spider
Who wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed a fly

- I guess she'll die

I know and old lady
Who swallowed a cat
Just imagine that
She swallowed a cat
She swallowed the cat
To catch the bird
She swallowed the bird
To catch the spider
Who wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her
And she swallowed the spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed the fly

- I guess she'll die!

I know an old lady who swallowed a dog
Ooh, what a hog
She swallowed the dog
She swallowed the dog
To catch the the cat
She swallowed the cat
To catch the bird
And she swallowed the bird
To catch the spider
Who wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her
And she swallowed the spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed the fly

- I guess she'll die

I know an old lady
Who swallowed a goat
She 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
And she swallowed the bird
To catch the spider
Who wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her
And she swallowed the spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed the fly

- I guess she'll die

And I knew an old lady
Who swallowed a minister
Is'nt that sinister?
To swallow a minister
She swallowed a minister
To catch the goat
And she swallowed a goat
To catch the dog
And she swallowed a dog
To catch the cat
She swallowed the cat
To catch the bird
And she swallowed the bird
To catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her
And she swallowed th spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed the fly.

- I guess she'll die

I know an old lady
Who swallowed a rhinosaurus
Isn't that preposterous!
To swallow a rhinosaurus
She swallowed a rhinosaurus
To catch the minister
She swallowed the minister
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
And she swallowed a bird
To catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her
And she swallowed the spider
To catch the fly
But I don't know why
She swallowed the fly

- I guess she'll die!

I know an old lady
Who swallowed a horse...she choked! (Alt. She's dead of course)
