Mary Had a Little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
'Twas always on the go.
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
So she staked it on a grassy slope
Along the Shenando',
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
,
cho: Hurrah for Mary! Hurrah for the lamb!
Hurrah for the sojers, who didn't care a damn,
For we'll rally round the flag, boys,
We'll rally once again,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.

And frequently she turned it loose
Upon the bank to play,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
The sojers eyed it from the shore
In a kleptomaniac way,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.

cho:

"What makes the men love mutton so?"
The colonel he did cry,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
'Cause mutton makes the whiskers grow,"
The sojers did reply,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.

cho:

lt swam across the Shenando',
Our pickets saw it too,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
And speedily it simmered down
Into a mutton stew,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
cho:

And Mary never more did see
Her darling little lamb,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
For the boys in blue they chawed it up,
And didn't give a damn,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
