Lyrics

Old MacDonald had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O!
And on that farm he had
some cows
E-I-E-I-O!

With a moo-moo here and a moo-moo there,
Here a moo, there a moo,
Everywhere a moo-moo!
Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O!

Old MacDonald had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O!
And on that farm he had
some chickens
E-I-E-I-O!

With a chick-chick here, and a chick-chick there,
Here a chick, there a chick,
Everywhere a chick-chick!
Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O!

Old MacDonald had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O!
And on that farm he had
some pigs
E-I-E-I-O!

With an oink-oink here, and
an oink-oink there,
Here an oink, there an oink,
Everywhere an oink-oink!
Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O!

Old MacDonald had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O!
And on that farm he had
some sheep
E-I-E-I-O!

With a baa-baa here, and a
baa-baa there,
Here a baa, there a baa,
Everywhere a baa-baa!
Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O!

Old MacDonald had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O!
And on that farm he had
some horses
E-I-E-I-O!

With a neigh-neigh here,
and a neigh-neigh there,
Here a neigh, there a neigh,
Everywhere a neigh-neigh!
Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O!
