London Bridge is a Mother Goose nursery rhyme from Richard Scarry's Best Sing-Along Mother Goose Video Ever.

This song game is played by Emperor Huckle Cat, Lily Bunny, Dennis and Patty Elephant. After that, they would like to play again, but Emperor Huckle had better look for his friend, Lowly Worm. He's lost. Emperor Huckle asks them where he is. Patty tells him he's in Mother Goose Land. Then he asks Lily if they've seen Lowly. They haven't seen him and they are sorry. But Emperor Huckle guesses he has to go now and goes on his way to keep looking for him by calling, “Lowly! Lowly, where are you?”

Lyrics/Script Edit

London Bridge is falling down

Falling down, falling down

London Bridge is falling down

My fair lady

Falling down, falling down

London Bridge is falling down

My fair lady

Take the key and lock him up

Lock him up, lock him up

Take the key and lock him up

My fair lady
