LONDON BRIDGE

London bridge is broken down,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

London bridge is broken down,

With a gay lady.


How shall we build it up again?

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

How shall we build it up again?

With a gay lady.


Build it up with silver and gold,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Build it up with silver and gold,

With a gay lady.


[19]

Silver and gold will be stolen away,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Silver and gold will be stolen away,

With a gay lady.


Build it up again with iron and steel,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Build it up with iron and steel,

With a gay lady.


Iron and steel will bend and bow,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Iron and steel will bend and bow,

With a gay lady.


Build it up with wood and clay,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Build it up with wood and clay,

With a gay lady.


Wood and clay will wash away,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Wood and clay will wash away,

With a gay lady.


Build it up with stone so strong,

Dance over, my Lady Lee;

Huzza! 't will last for ages long,

With a gay lady.
