Old Mother Twitchett Had But One Eye

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

This version has a small change in the words

Old Mother Twitchett
Had but one eye,
And a long tail,
Which she let fly;
And every time she went
Over a gap,
She left a bit of tail
In a trap.

This may not be all that different, since I am only 18, but the version I learned when I was younger was: Old Mother Twitchett had only one eye, and a looooong thin tail, which she would let fly, and every time she went through a gap, a slice of her tail she left in a trap.
