I hope she swallowed a whale.

I made one more verse for this music:
 "There was an old lady who swallowed a whale!
I hope and believe everything will be well!
She swallowed the whale to catch the horse
She swallowed the horse to catch the cow
She swallowed the cow to catch the dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
I don't know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die!"

And the strangest thing that I already ate was cat's food!
