Lyrics

There was an Old Woman who lived in a shoe; had so many children; didn't know what to do. She fed them and kissed them and put them to bed. By the next day they drove her out of her head.

More shoes to find and socks to match. Washing and ironing and trousers to patch. More tears to dry, and hearts to mend. And the next day she starts all over again.

There was an Old Woman who lived in a shoe; had so many children; didn't know what to do. She fed them and kissed them and put them to bed. By the next day they drove her out of her head.

Some, they want soup and some want bread. And some want nothing 'til it's time for bed. Check all the closets and lock all the doors. Make sure those monsters aren't around any more. Bridge Night and day. Day and night. Everything is a list. Check it off. Mark it "done". Tell me, "what did I miss?' Running here. Here and there. Who's gonna clean up the mess. Pick it up. Put it down. Tell me, "when do I rest?'.

There was an Old Woman who lived in a shoe; had so many children; didn't know what to do. She fed them and kissed them and put them to bed. By the next day they drove her out of her head.

Information About Old Woman

"Old Woman" is better known as "There Was An Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe" and is an old English nursery rhyme dating back to at least the 18th century.

The earliest printed version was found in Joseph Ritson's "Gammer Gurton's Garland" of 1794.

There exist some theories with regards to the rhyme's meaning, most of which revolve around matching the "old woman" with historical figures who had large families. One of whom being Queen Caroline the wife of King George II, who had eight children.
