Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow,
Ev'rywhere that Mary went,
That lamb was sure to go.
And you could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

He followed her to school one day,
It was against the rules,
Made the children laugh and play to
See a lamb at school.

You could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

Soon the teacher turned it out,
Still it lingered near,
Waited patiently about till
Mary did appear.

You could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

"But the lamb loved Mary so",
The eager children cry,
"And Mary loves the lamb, you know",
The teacher did reply.

And you could hear them singing:
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.
(Ev'ry body singing)
