Mary had a little lamb

Little lamb, little lamb

Mary had a little lamb

His fleece was white as snow

And everywhere that Mary went

Mary went, Mary went

Everywhere that Mary went

That lamb was sure to go

 

He followed her to school one day

School one day, school one day

He followed her to school one day

Which was against the rules

It made the children laugh and play

Laugh and play, laugh and play

It made the children laugh and play

To see a lamb at school

 

And so the teacher turned him out

Turned him out, turned him out

And so the teacher turned him out

But still he lingered near

The lamb did wait patiently

Patiently, patiently

The lamb did wait patiently

Til Mary did appear

 

Mary had a little lamb

Little lamb, little lamb

Mary had a little lamb

His fleece was white as snow

And everywhere that Mary went

Mary went, Mary went

Everywhere that Mary went

The lamb was sure to go
