Mary Had A Little Lamb


Children will love to sing and dance
along with this fun kid’s nursery rhyme song!

Lyrics

Mary had a little lamb,
little lamb, little lamb.
Mary had a little lamb,
its fleece was white as snow.

And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went;
And everywhere 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,
that was against the rule.

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.
