The Animals on the Farm
(Tune: The Wheels on the Bus)

The cows on the farm go moo, moo, moo.
Moo, moo, moo. Moo, moo, moo.
The cows on the farm go moo, moo, moo
All day long.
The horses on the farm go nay, nay, nay.
Nay nay, nay, nay, nay, nay.
The horses on the farm go nay, nay, nay
All day long.

Down At the Barnyard
(Tune:Down by the station)

Down at the barnyard,
Early in the morning.
See the little chicks,
Moving to and fro.
See them flap their wings
As they come to greet us.
Flap, flap, flap, flap,
Off they go.

Mary Had A Little Lamb

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
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 make the children laugh and play
laugh and play
laugh and play
It make the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

Once a farmer had a cow
And Daisy was her name-o.

And daisy was her name-o.
Once a farmer had a horse
And Honey was her name-o.

And Honey was her name-o.


The Farmer in the Dell

The farmer in the dell,
The farmer in the dell,
Hi, Ho the dairy-o,
The farmer in the dell.
The farmer takes a wife,
The farmer takes a wife,
Hi, Ho the dairy-o,
The farmer takes a wife.

The wife takes a child,
The child takes a nurse,
The nurse takes a dog,
The dog takes a cat,
The cat takes a rat,
The mouse takes the cheese,
The cheese stands alone,
The cheese stands alone,
Hi, Ho, the dairy-o,
The cheese stands alone.


The Farmer and His Seeds
(Tune: The Farmer In The Dell)

The farmer plants the seeds,
The farmer plants the seeds, (children pretend to plant seeds)
Hi, Ho, the dairy-o,
The farmer plants the seeds.
The sun comes out to shine, etc (make large circle with arms)
The rain begins to fall, etc (hands flutter up and down)
The seeds begin to grow, etc (children begin to rise)
The farmer cuts them down, etc (move arms to imitate mower)
And now we'll have some bread, (pretend to eat)


Farmer Plows the Ground
(Tune: Here We Go 'Round the Mulberry Bush)

First the farmer plows the ground, (guide plow down rows)
Plows the ground, plows the ground.
First the farmer plows the ground,
Then he plants the seeds. (plant seeds)
This is the way he plants the seeds, (children in crouched position)
So that they will grow.
The rain and sun will help them grow, (children begin to rise)
Right up through the ground.
Now the farmer picks the beans, (pretend to pick beans)
And we have food to eat.
