London Bridge


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. (source)


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

Build it up with iron bars…

Iron bars will bend and break…

Build it up with silver and gold…


Two students make an arch with their arms while the other students run under the arch. At the last word of each verse (“lady”), drop the arch, catching someone.
