The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly;

I don't know why she swallowed a fly; I guess she'll die!

*****************

I know an old lady who swallowed a spider

.....that wriggled & wriggled & 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!

 

(Now replace the word "fly" with each one of these:

bird!   Now, how absurd to swallow a bird! She 

(a)     swallowed the bird to catch the spider ......

 

cat!  Now, fancy that, to swallow a cat!

(b)   She swallowed the cat to catch the bird, She (to a)

 

dog! My, what a hog, to swallow a dog! 

(c) She swallowed the dog to catch the cat, She (to b)

 

goat! Just opened her throat and in walked the goat! 

(d) She  swallowed the goat to catch the dog, She (to c) 

 

cow! I don't know how, she swallowed a cow;
She  swallowed the cow to catch the goat, She  (to d)

 

I know an old lady who swallowed a horse. I'll never know why she swallowed a horse,  She's dead of course!
