Mary had a little lamb,
It's fleece was white as snow,
Everywhere that Mary Went,
The little lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school one day
And broke the teachers rule
What a time did they have
That day at school

Tisket! Tasket! baby
A green and yellow basket
Wrote a letter to my baby
On my way I passed it

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

    Everywhere that mary went,
    mary went, mary went,
    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
    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 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 about, patiently about,
    and waited patiently about
    till mary did appear

    "why does the lamb love mary so? "
    love mary so? Love mary so? "why does the lamb love mary so? "
    the eager children cry

    "why, mary loves the lamb, you know. "
    loves the lamb, you know, loves the lamb, you know
    "why, mary loves the lamb, you know. "
