There was a little woman,
As I’ve heard tell.
Fa la, diddle diddle da.
She went to market,
Her eggs to sell.
Fa la, diddle diddle da.
She went to market
All on a market day,
And she fell asleep
Upon the King’s highway.
Folly lolla lolla lolla la,
Fa la la la la la la.

(Dr. Wolf: “Now tell about that one.”
Mrs. Apple: “Well, this is an old song that we just used to sing when we’d uh, when the young people would get together to have a party. The small children.”)
