Classic song to enjoy with your kids
on 14 March 2003
My Mum bought this for me when I was little and I loved the song. I forgot all about it until recently when I bought a Pete Seeger CD - 'Birds, Beasts, Bugs and Fishes (Little and Big)' - and it has this slightly dark but funny song on it. So I searched on Amazon and found the book I had when I was little. It's got holes in it so you can peek into the old lady's tummy to see all the animals she's gobbled up. Now my little girl enjoys singing the song with me about the old lady who swallowed the horse, cow, dog, cat, bird, spider and fly - perhaps she'll die?
