On The Farm

Children will love to sing and dance
along with this fun Animal song!


On the farm there lives a cow
and that cow she gives us milk.
Milk to drink!

On the farm there lives a hen
and that hen she lays an egg.
I like it boiled!

On the farm there lives a cat
and that cat can catch a rat.
Fancy that!

On the farm there lives a horse
and that horse takes us for rides.
It 's fun of course!

On the farm there lives a sheep
and that sheep she gives us wool.
It keeps me warm!

On the farm there lives a pig
and that pig makes grunting sounds.
And mucks around!

On the farms there lives a dog
and that dog rounds up the sheep.
Sure saves my feet!
