Thread Name: Lyr Req: London Bridge Is Falling Down
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: London Bridge Is Falling Down
In a belated response to Tug and Mayomick ... the "here comes a candle to light you to bed, here comes a chopper to chop off your head" was always part of the song "Oranges and Lemons" when I was a child. Nothing to do with London Bridge, though. Oddly enough it was often sung at birthday parties, although definitely on the macabre side!
