Liedtext

Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb, whose fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went, Mary went, Mary went,
And 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 rule.
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 it still lingered near.
And waited patiently about,
Patiently about, patiently about,
And waited patiently about,
Till Mary did appear.

And then it ran to her and laid, her and laid, her and laid,
And then it ran to her and laid, its head upon her arm,
As if it said, "I'm not afraid -, not afraid, not afraid,
As if it said, "I'm not afraid -, you'll keep me from all harm."

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
Mary so, Mary so,
"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
the eager children cried.
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
lamb, you know, lamb, you know,
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
the teacher then replied.
