Modern day Children's song

We all remember "There was an old lady, who swallowed a fly..." I believe that that children's song would be done slightly different today.

There was an old lady who lives all alone.
She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown,
Just her and the phone.

The kids got together and bought her a cat,
It slept on the mat, that lazy fat cat.
The kids purchased the cat so she would not be alone.
But She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown -
Just her and the phone.

There was an old lady who had a fat cat;
She couldn’t afford to feed both her and the cat!
So she fed the cat, and shared the cat food
It slept on the mat, that lazy fat cat.
The kids purchased the cat so she would not be alone.
But She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown -
Just her and the phone

There was an old lady who mortgaged her house.
She mortgaged the house and felt like a louse.
She had hoped that the house would be left to her brood ...
So she fed the cat, and shared the cat food
It slept on the mat, that lazy fat cat.
The kids purchased the cat so she would not be alone.
But She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown
Just her and the phone

The bank was foreclosing cause the payments were late.
The house she had lived in would foreshadow her fate...
She had hoped that the house would be left to her brood ...
So she fed the cat, and shared the cat food
It slept on the mat, that lazy fat cat.
The kids purchased the cat so she would not be alone.
But She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown
Just her and the phone.

There was an old lady who’d soon live in the park.
Oh my it can get dark in the park!
She lived in the park cause the bank took her home ...
The home she had purchased with her husband Jerome.
She had hoped that the house would be left to her brood ...
So she fed the cat, and shared the cat food
It slept on the mat, that lazy fat cat.
The kids purchased the cat so she would not be alone.
But She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown Just her and the phone.

The kids came a calling on Thanksgiving Day
They were surprised that Mom was away!
They called the Police, who looked in the park...
She lived in the park cause the bank took her home...
The home she had purchased with her husband Jerome...
She had hoped that the house would be left to her brood ...
So she fed the cat, and shared the cat food
It slept on the mat, that lazy fat cat.
The kids purchased the cat so she would not be alone.
But She lived all alone, cause the kids had all flown
Just her and the phone.

There was an old lady who was found dead in the park.

It is sad that this is a real-world situation.

Dark but rich, you're better'n chocolate.

McCain's motto should be: If I'm elected, parks for everyone!

A little too dark.

Glad to hear that you're doing better.
