  • London Bridge is falling down
    Falling down, falling down
    London Bridge is falling down
    My fair Lady.

    Take a key and lock her up
    Lock her up, lock her up
    Take a key and lock her up
    My fair Lady

    How will we build it up?
    Build it up, build it up?
    How will we build it up?
    My fair Lady

    Build it up with gold and silver
    Gold and silver, gold and silver
    Build it up with gold and silver
    My fair Lady

    Gold and Silver I have none
    I have none, I have none
    Gold and Silver I have none
    My fair Lady

    Build it up with Pins and Needles
    Pins and Needles, Pins and Needles
    Build it up with Pins and Needles
    My fair Lady

    Pins and Needles bend and break
    Bend and break, bend and break
    Pins and Needles bend and break
    My fair Lady

    Build it up with wood and clay
    Wood and clay, wood and clay
    Build it up with wood and clay
    My fair Lady

    Wood and clay will wash away
    Wash away, wash away
    Wood and clay will wash away
    My fair Lady

    Build it up with stone so strong
    Stone so strong, stone so strong
    Build it up with stone so strong
    My fair Lady

    Stone so strong will last so long
    Last so long, last so long
    Stone so strong will last so long
    My fair Lady Lyrics from a song in Public Domain

  • Hazel from KansasThe facts are interesting, and it's a cute video, but as a Londoner by birth I'm wondering why it shows Tower Bridge instead of London Bridge? There seems to be a lot of confusion among Americans today as to which is which!
