I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly  Burl Ives



I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a fly.
[Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly,
Perhaps she'll [D]die.[A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a spider,
That [Em]wriggled and jiggled and[A] tickled inside her.
She [D]swallowed the spider to c[D]atch the fly.
But [Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll [D]die.  [A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a bird;
[Em]How absurd, to [A]swallow a bird!
She [D]swallowed the bird to [D]catch the spider
That [Em]wriggled and jiggled and[A] tickled inside her.
She [D]swallowed the spider to [D]catch the fly.
But [Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll [D]die.  [A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a cat.
I[Em]magine that, she s[A]wallowed a cat.
She [D]swallowed the cat to [D]catch the bird ...
She [D]swallowed the bird to [D]catch the spider
That [Em]wriggled and jiggled and[A] tickled inside her.
She [D]swallowed the spider to [D]catch the fly.
But [Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll [D]die.  [A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a dog.
[Em]What a hog! To [A]swallow a dog!
She [D]swallowed the dog to [D]catch the cat...
She [D]swallowed the cat to [D]catch the bird ...
She [D]swallowed the bird to [D]catch the spider
That [Em]wriggled and jiggled and[A] tickled inside her.
She [D]swallowed the spider to [D]catch the fly.
But [Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll [D]die.  [A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a goat.
Just [Em]opened her throat and [A]swallowed a goat!
She [D]swallowed the goat to [D]catch the dog ...
She [D]swallowed the dog to [D]catch the cat...
She [D]swallowed the cat to [D]catch the bird ...
She [D]swallowed the bird to [D]catch the spider
That [Em]wriggled and jiggled and[A] tickled inside her.
She [D]swallowed the spider to [D]catch the fly.
But [Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll [D]die.  [A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a cow.
[Em]I don't know how she [A]swallowed a cow!
She [D]swallowed the cow to [D]catch the goat...
She [D]swallowed the goat to [D]catch the dog ...
She [D]swallowed the dog to [D]catch the cat...
She [D]swallowed the cat to [D]catch the bird ...
She [D]swallowed the bird to [D]catch the spider
That [Em]wriggled and jiggled and[A] tickled inside her.
She [D]swallowed the spider to [D]catch the fly.
But [Em]I dunno why she [A]swallowed that fly -
Perhaps she'll [D]die.  [A7]
I [D]know an old lady who [Bm]swallowed a horse -
She's dead, of course.
