Mary had a little lamb 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
Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go

He followed her to school one day
School one day, school one day
He followed her to school one day
Which 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

And so the teacher turned him out
Turned him out, turned him out
And so the teacher turned him out
But still he lingered near
And waited patiently about
Patiently, patiently
And wai-aited patiently about
Til Mary did appear

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
Mary so? Mary so?
"Why does the lamb love Mary so,"
the eager children cry
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
The lamb, you know, the lamb, you know,
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,"
the teacher did reply

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

Mary had a little lamb
