I know an old lady who swallowed a fly

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. 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. There was an old lady who swallowed a bird. How absurd, to swallow a bird!

The song tells the nonsensical story of an old woman who swallows increasingly large animals, each to catch the previously swallowed animal, but dies after swallowing a horse. The humour of the song stems from the absurdity that the woman is able to inexplicably and impossibly swallow animals of preposterous sizes without dying, suggesting that she is both superhuman and immortal ; however, the addition of a horse is finally enough to kill her. Her inability to survive after swallowing the horse is an event that abruptly and unexpectedly applies real-world logic to the song, directly contradicting her formerly established logic-defying animal-swallowing capability. There are many variations of phrasing in the lyrics, especially for the description of swallowing each animal. The spider and fly are described in each verse, but the other animals are only described when they are introduced starting with the bird. All three list the progression from fly to spider, bird, cat, dog and cow, finishing with the horse, with variations to the rhymes for each animal.

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly I don't know why she swallowed a fly Perhaps she'll die. I know an old lady who swallowed a spider That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her She swallowed the spider to catch the fly I don't know why she swallowed the fly Perhaps she'll die. I know 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 tickled inside her She swallowed the spider to catch the fly I don't know why she swallowed the fly Perhaps she'll die.

This means that the action repeats, but also accumulates during the rhyme. The kids find this technique very fascinating, and singing this nursery rhyme is great fun!
