There was an old lady that swallowed a fly

Once upon a time 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! According to WikiPedia this is a nonsense rhyme which aids memory retention. The poem is a relatively modern rhyme and therefore has no origin in history. The rhyme tells the story of an old woman who swallowed increasingly large animals, each to catch the previously swallowed animal. 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. This rhyme for children appeals to their initial logic that a fly can be swallowed by an old lady. A spider would also be seen as logical and physically possible.
