    There was an Old Lady song


    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;
    Fancy that to swallow 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’s dead, of course!

    Online video (2 min 18 sec) has slightly different lyrics (additional verse, etc.; matches what’s here), but same ending.

    This is called Reaping What You’ve Sown, or alternatively, Just Desserts. Take your pick; Poncho’s got it.

    I recall the line: There was an old lady who swallowed a goat. She just opened her throat and swallowed the goat.

    I think it came after the dog.

    You’re right! Didn’t have too much time this morning to go checking around, but at least you’ve addressed the nagging feeling I had that the song was indeed longer than what I found on line!

    Thanks!

    According to its Wikipedia page, there are several versions. It lists a pig, before the cow, and a donkey, before the horse, which is in neither your source, nor mine. It doesn’t show the lyrics, just lists the creatures swallowed in the song.

    When I saw your comment, they didn’t seem like song lyrics to me; so, I went looking for an audio track.

    If I had searched for more, I would have found 2 videos with Burl Ives singing the song. In this (2 min 44 sec), he sings the same lyrics as the video link in my prior comment. But, in this (5 min 30 sec, more of a cartoon), the pig is added to the mix. There’s probably one with the donkey, somewhere out there as well.

    Just thought I should let you know — I don’t know that I was anymore right than you were.

    Why haven’t any of these bozos thought of using that device called A LADDER?
