Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes 3
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 13.0pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';">"<b>London Bridge Is Falling Down</b>" (also known as "<b>My Fair Lady</b>" or simply "<b>London Bridge</b>") is a traditional nursery rhyme and singing game, which is found in different versions all over the world. It deals with the depredations of London Bridge and attempts, realistic or fanciful, to repair it. It may date back to bridge rhymes and games of the late Middle Ages, but the earliest records of the rhyme in English are from the seventeenth century. The lyrics were first printed in close to its modern form in the mid-eighteenth century and became popular, particularly in Britain and the United States in the nineteenth century. The modern melody was first recorded in the late nineteenth century and the game resembles arch games of the Middle Ages, but seems to have taken its modern form in the late nineteenth century. Several theories have been advanced to explain the meaning of the rhyme and the identity of the "fair lady" of the refrain. The rhyme is one of the most well known in the world and has been referenced in a variety of works of literature and popular culture.  Read by Cris Walton.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
