Ten woolly lambs on a meadow by the hill
When the shepherd started singing they all stood still
Hi-li-aye, (hi-li-aye), hi-li-o, (hi-li-o)
And the wolf walks slowly through the wheat

Eight woolly lambs on a peaceful mountainside
For while the shepherd sang two of them had died
Hi-li-aye,(hi-li-aye), hi-li-o, (hi-li-o)
And the wolf walks slowly through the wheat

Six woolly lambs all huddled in a bunch
One disappeared for breakfast and another one for lunch
Hi-li-aye, hi-li-o
And the wolf walks slowly through the wheat

Four woolly lambs meet the soft and starry sky
The shepherd couldn't sing but oh how he could try
Hi-li-aye, (hi-li-aye), hi-li-o, (hi-li-o)
And the wolf walked slowly through the wheat

Two woolly lambs shiver all night long
While the shepherd calmly sang the last verse of his song
Hi-li-aye, (hi-li-aye), hi-li-o, (hi-li-o)
And the wolf walks slowly through the wheat

The ending of this story is sad and most forlorn
The woolly lambs had vanished, the shepherd sorry he was born
Hi-li-aye, (hi-li-aye), hi-li-o, (hi-li-o)
And the wolf has an awful tummy ache
