Nursery rhymes: there was an old lady

E dopo l’old man della scorsa settimana, navigando in rete alla ricerca di english songs per giovani marmocchi, mi sono imbattuta in questa canzoncina che trovo davvero formidabile.

C’è questa vecchina che se ne sta seduta in poltrona tranquilla e beata, quando le passa davanti una mosca. E lei che fa? She swallowed the fly. E perchè? Non si sa. Ma per acchiappare la mosca la vecchina ha un’idea grandiosa: she swallowed a spider! E così via con animali sempre più grandi. Finchè…

Ecco a voi video e testo. Buon… appetito!

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!
