"Little Lamb" as written by and Stephen/styne Sondheim....
Little lamb, little lamb
My birthday is here at last
Little lamb, little lamb
My birthday goes by so fast

Little bear, little bear
You sit on my right, right there
Little hen, little hen
What game should we play and when?

Little cat, little cat
Oh, why do you look so blue?
Did somebody paint you like that
Or is your birthday too?

Little fish, little fish
Do you think I'll get my wish?
Little lamb, little lamb
I wonder how old I am
I wonder how old I am
Little lamb

    Song MeaningThis song was sung my Natalie Wood in the musical 'Gypsy' - based on the life of the famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee.
    Gypsy had been performing in vaudeville with her sister and other children. To keep the act going, her mother kept putting back the ages of her girls and dressing them as children when they were already in their teens.
    On her birthday, Gypsy sings this song to animals from the act to convey her confusion about her real age.
