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

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