Mary had a little lamb
His bleeks was white as snow
Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go

He followed her to school one day
And that was against the rule
He made the children laugh and play
You've seen that lamb, oh that lamb in school

Mary had a little lamb
(Oh Mary)
Mary had a little lamb
(Listen, let me tell you something)

Ever since I was four years old
I hated a silly rule
Ever since they ran Mary's lamb
Oh, all the way you're home from school

You should have seen Mary cry
When she waved to her lamb goodbye
The teacher said, "Mary come inside
Come on and dry, oh, dry your eyes"

Mary had a little lamb
(Oh, oh, oh Mary)
Mary had a little lamb
(Wait a minute)

Mary, don't you be so blue
And bring that lamb back to school
And Mary don't you be no fool
You see the lamb daily through

When you go, oh, home today
You and your lamb can play
You can even do the twist
And then it goes something like this

Mary had a little lamb
(Oh, oh, oh Mary)
Mary had a little lamb
(Oh, oh, oh Mary)

Mary had a little lamb
(Come on Mary)
Mary had a little lamb
(Don't you be such a moaner)

Mary had a little lamb
(Don't moan no more)
Mary had a little lamb
(Hey, hey, hey, hey Mary)

Mary had a little lamb
(Come on Mary, oh)
Mary had a little lamb
(Come on Mary)
