There was an old lady who swallowed a fly….


Warning: This is not a Limerick though it looks like one.


It is a funny poem meant to be shared between Grandparents and kids. I am sure many of you must have enjoyed such stuff in the past. Without wasting your time further let us move further:


1. There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.


I don’t know why she swallowed that fly,


Perhaps she’ll die.


2. 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 don’t know why she swallowed that fly


Perhaps she’ll die.


3. 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 don’t know why she swallowed that fly


Perhaps she’ll die.


4. 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 don’t know why she swallowed that fly


Perhaps she’ll die


5. 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 don’t know why she swallowed that fly


Perhaps she’ll die.


6. 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 don’t know why she swallowed that fly


Perhaps she’ll die.


7. 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 don’t know why she swallowed that fly


Perhaps she’ll die.


8, SUSPENSE…..


There was an old lady who swallowed a horse


She’s dead, of course!!


That is called leading one to the garden path amd then dumping you in a well.
