Historical Background:
"London Bridge" is reputedly written in reference to King Henry VIII of England (1491 — 1547) and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, the mother of Queen Elizabeth I. The earliest version of the rhyme appears in "Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book," published around 1744, titled "London Bridge Is Broken Down." In this early text, "Lady Lee" is supposedly Lady Margaret Wyatt, a childhood friend of Anne, and eventually her faithful lady-in-waiting. The victim of a conspiracy among Henry's advisors, Anne Boleyn was falsely convicted of adultery and high treason and consequently executed; the lyrics of rhyme are said to document her rise and fall. Though destroyed and rebuilt many times (most recently in 1973), the London Bridge was first constructed by the Romans in 50 AD, and remains one of the most famous landmarks in London to this day.

"London Bridge is Falling Down" lyrics:
London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
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.

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

  1. Kkjhhhjjjjj Би тэр постыг бичсэн гээд байгаа хүний ах нь байна. Манай дүү фэйсбүүкийнхээ пассвордыг хэн нэгэнд алдаад сар болж байна. Энэ хүн өөрөө эх хүн, эмэгтэй хүн учраас яагаад ч олон нийтийн дургүйцлыг төрүүлэх ийм зүйл бичихгүй. Ямар ч монгол хүн хүн амаа өсч байхад тэр дундаа олон нийтийн мэдээллийн хэрэгслээр ийм зүйл бичихгүй ээ гэдгийг ухаж ойлгоорой
