Roy Hibbert reads you a poem


Not sure where he found it, but I can attest that this is true.

If you call 317-275-4444, Roy Hibbert will read you the children's poem, "Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly."


Very strange...

Full text of the poem after the jump.

Yep, he reads the whole thing

 

There was an old woman who swallowed a fly,

I don't know why she swallowed a fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,

I don't know why she swallowed the fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

How absurd! to swallow a bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,

I don't know why she swallowed the fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

Imagine that! to swallow a cat,

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,

I don't know why she swallowed the fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

What a hog! to swallow a dog,

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,

I don't know why she swallowed the fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

Just opened her throat! to swallow a goat,

She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,

I don't know why she swallowed the fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

I don't know how she swallowed a cow!

She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,

She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,

I don't know why she swallowed the fly,

Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a spider,

There was an old woman who swallowed a bird,

There was an old woman who swallowed a cat,

There was an old woman who swallowed a dog,

There was an old woman who swallowed a goat,

There was an old woman who swallowed a cow,

There was an old woman who swallowed a horse,

She's dead - of course!
