“An old woman who lived in a shoe”是一首搖籃曲。描寫一個忙的團團轉的母親。
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn’t know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread;
She whipped them all soundly, and put them to bed.
所以，I liken myself to the old woman who lives in a shoe 是描述自己好像那個住在鞋子裡的老婦人 – 又忙又亂，團團轉。
