Sing a Song

The Farmer in the Dell

Go outside and march around and sing The Farmer in the Dell.

The farmer in the dell
The farmer in the dell
Hi-ho, the derry-o
The farmer in the dell

The farmer takes a wife
The farmer takes a wife
Hi-ho, the derry-o
The farmer takes a wife

The wife takes a child …
The child takes a nurse. . .
The nurse takes a cow. . .
The cow takes a dog. . .
The dog takes a cat. . .
The cat takes a rat. . .
The rat takes the cheese. . .

The cheese stands alone
The cheese stands alone
Hi-Ho, the derry-o
The cheese stands alone
