Children’s song. mary had a little lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb.
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow.
And ev’ry where that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went.
Ev’rywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go.

It followed her to school one day,
School one day, school one day.
It followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule.
It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play.
It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play to see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
Turned it out, turned it out.
And so the teacher turned it out
But still it lingered near.
And waited patiently about,
Patiently, patiently
And waited patiently about,
‘Till Mary did appear.

“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
Mary so, Mary so.
“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
The eager children cry.
“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know!”
Lamb you know, lamb you know.
“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know!”
The teacher did reply.
