Ok thanks.  I tried to google it.   I want to know the whole song so i can teach it to dd.   Sigh, google is not my friend when it brings up pictures instead of actual info.

There was an old woman that swallowed a spider, that wiggled, and jiggled, and tickled inside her. She swallowed the spider to swallow the fly, I dont know why she swallowed the fly, perhaps she'll die... (then as follows:)

Bird-isn't that absurd to swallow a bird

Cat-imagine that, to swallow a cat

Dog-what a hog to swallow a dog

Goat-hurt her throat to swallow that goat

Cow- I dont know how she swallowed a cow

Elephant- (dramatic pause) and now she's dead!

Call me dense if you want but you just sub each animal where spider originally was ,correct?

Yeah, with them swallowing the previous animal, then go through all the animals according to size, kwim?

Ex: There was an old lady who swallowed a bird, how absurd to swallow a bird. She swallowed the bird to swallow the spider, that wiggled and jiggled and tickled inside her (great place to tickle attack the kids btw). She swallowed the spider to swallow the fly, I dont know why she swallowed the fly, perhaps she'll die.

Is that clearer?
