The Little Red Hen Song

Tune: Mulberry Bush
This is the way I plant the seed,
Plant the seed, plant the seed,
This is the way I plant the seed,
So early in the morning.

This is the way I cut the wheat,
Cut the wheat, cut the wheat,
This is the way I cut the wheat,
So early in the morning.

This is the way I go to the mill,
Go to the mill, go to the mill,
This is the way I go to the mill,
So early in the morning.

This is the way I make the dough,
Make the dough, make the dough,
This is the way I make the dough,
So early in the morning.

This is the way I bake the bread,
Bake the bread, bake the bread,
This is the way I bake the bread,
So early in the morning.

This is the way I eat the bread,
Eat the bread, eat the bread,
This is the way I eat the bread,
So early in the morning.
