"There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don't know why she swallowed the fly, probalee to get a spider she swallered, or maybe the bird. that was ab ... ab ... ab.
"MOM! What's that word?"
"Oh Yeah. A bird. She swalllered the bird to catch a fly to eat a spider.
and then the old lady ate a cat to catch the fly or the spider and maybe a bird. But a bird doesn't eat a cat. So that's just weird.
"Oh I don't know why she swallowed the fly. Maybe to get the dog ... or the hog.
"MOM! What's a HOG?"
"It's like a pig, Annabel".
"Well maybe they should just say pig.
"OK that's pretty big, to swaller a pig. Maybe it was to get the goat.
And that rhymes with coat but not cow or horse, which comes next. But then she's fat. And that is that."
"Are you sure that's how the song goes?"
"Yes, because Silas likes it."
