Lyrics

Tim Hart and Maddy Prior sing London Bridge Is Falling Down

London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady.

Then build it up with wood and clay,
Wood and clay, wood and clay.
Build it up with wood and clay,
My fair lady.

But wood and clay will wash away,
Wash away, wash away.
But wood and clay will wash away,
My fair lady.

Then build it up with iron and steel,
Iron and steel, iron and steel.
Build it up with iron and steel,
My fair lady.

But iron and steel will bend and bow,
Bend and bow, bend and bow.
But iron and steel will bend and bow,
My fair lady.

We'll build it up with brick and stone,
Brick and stone, brick and stone.
We'll build it up with brick and stone,
My fair lady.

And it will last for evermore,
Evermore, evermore.
It will last for evermore,
My fair lady.
