London Bridge

London Bridge first appeared in Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book in 1744, however, it was likely already well-established by this time. London Bridge is a well-known traditional nursery rhyme. A chord-melody arrangement is presented below in the key of G. The song is played brightly in 4/4 time.

Lyrics

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

Take a key and lock her up,
Lock her up, Lock her up. 

Take a key and lock her up,
My fair lady. 

How will we build it up,
Build it up, Build it up? 

How will we build it up,
My fair lady? 

Build it up with silver and gold,
Silver and gold, Silver and gold. 

Build it up with silver and gold,
My fair lady. 

Gold and silver I have none,
I have none, I have none. 

Gold and silver I have none,
My fair lady. 

Build it up with needles and pins,
Needles and pins, Needles and pins. 

Build it up with needles and pins,
My fair lady. 

Pins and needles bend and break,
Bend and break, Bend and break. 

Pins and needles bend and break,
My fair lady. 

Build it up with wood and clay,
Wood and clay, Wood and clay. 

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

Wood and clay will wash away,
Wash away, Wash away. 

Wood and clay will wash away,
My fair lady. 

Build it up with stone so strong,
Stone so strong, Stone so strong. 

Build it up with stone so strong,
My fair lady. 

Stone so strong will last so long,
Last so long, Last so long. 

Stone so strong will last so long, 
My fair lady.
