Mary Had a Little Lamb Lyrics in English
Here are the Mary Had A Little Lamb Lyrics UK:
Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb it’s fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went, Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went the lamb was sure to go.
It followed her to school one day, school one day, school one day.
It followed her to school one day, it was against the rules.
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 it out, turned it out, turned it out
And so the teacher turned it out. But still it lingered near.
And waited patiently about, patiently about, patiently about
And waited patiently about, till Mary did appear.
Why does the lamb love Mary So, Love Mary so, Love Mary so?
Why does the lamb love Mary so? The eager children cry.
Why Mary loves the lamb you know, Loves the lamb you know, loves the lamb you know.
Why Mary Loves the lamb you know. The teacher did reply.
