There was a young girl who swallowed a lie,
I don't know why she swallowed a lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed some cider,
It squirmed and writhed and burned inside her,
She swallowed the cider to drown the lie,
I don't know why she swallowed the lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed a word,
Tears blurred, she swallowed that word,
She swallowed the word to scare the cider,
That squirmed and writhed and burned inside her,
She swallowed the cider to drown the lie,
I don't know why she swallowed a lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed some fat,
Imagine that, she swallowed the fat,
She swallowed the fat to hurl the word,
She swallowed the word to scare the cider,
That squirmed and writhed and burned inside her,
She swallowed the cider to drown the lie,
I don't know why she swallowed the lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed the fog,
Her throat a bog, she swallowed the fog,
She swallowed the fog to hide the fat,
She swallowed the fat to hurl the word,
She swallowed the word to scare the cider,
That squirmed and writhed and burned inside her,
She swallowed the cider to drown the lie,
I don't know why she swallowed the lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed her coat,
Tore up her throat and swallowed her coat,
She swallowed her coat to catch the fog,
She swallowed the fog to hide the fat,
She swallowed the fat to hurl the word,
She swallowed the word to scare the cider,
That squirmed and writhed and burned inside her,
She swallowed the cider to drown the lie,
I don't know why she swallowed a lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed a vow,
I don't know how she swallowed a vow,
She swallowed the vow to rip the coat,
She swallowed the coat to catch the fog,
She swallowed the fog to hide the fat,
She swallowed the fat to hurl the word,
She swallowed the word to scare the cider,
That squirmed and writhed and burned inside her,
She swallowed the cider to drown the lie,
I don't know why she swallowed the lie,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was a young girl who swallowed remorse,
She's dead, of course!
Re-write of the nursery rhyme, "There was an old woman who swallowed a fly!" I'm pretty proud of this one, so I hope you like it <3
