The farmer in the dell.
The farmer in the dell.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer in the dell.

The farmer milks the cow.
The farmer milks the cow.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer milks the cow.

The farmer feeds the pigs.
The farmer feeds the pigs.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer feeds the pigs.

The farmer gathers eggs.
The farmer gathers eggs.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer gathers eggs.

The farmer plants the seeds.
The farmer plants the seeds.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer plants the seeds.

The farmer picks the corn.
The farmer picks the corn.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer picks the corn.

The farmer in the dell.
The farmer in the dell.
Hi-ho, the derry-o The farmer in the dell.

What can your child learn from it?

As your child joins the farmer in picking a wife, a child, and even a dog, they’re picking up some pretty neat skills too. From social roles to sequencing, this song offers a delightful and educational look at farm life. Plus, the repetitive nature of the song is fantastic for boosting memory and comprehension skills.

And you can also use it to practice English speaking!

So, why not turn it into a game? Arrange chairs in a circle and have the children walk around them while singing. When the song hits the next character, that child sits in a chair!

You can also mix it up by adding new animals or farm equipment to the song. How about the farmer takes a tractor? Get creative!

So, are you ready to take a little musical journey to the farm? Let’s get those vocal cords mooing and hooves tapping!
