Said The Little Brown Hen-1937
  Regal Zonophone MR2469 Gifford/Cliffe/Formby

Down on our farm the animals all roam about in pairs,
But lately they've got all mixed up, with their love affairs.

Said the little brown hen to the little white duck, "I love you,
But why do you go quack instead of cluck?"
Said the little brown hen to the little white duck, "I love you,
But I can't speak the language of the duck.

Love and laughter, makes you go dafter and dafter,
Shortly after, came a lot of little chicks and a lot of little ducks.
Said the little brown hen to the little white duck, "I love you.
Now they don't know whether to quack, quack or cluck cluck.

The old black crow instead of cawing all day sings so sweet.
The donkey too, instead of braying, now goes tweet, tweet, tweet.
Said the little brown cow to the little white goat, "I love you,
But why do you go ma instead of moo?"

Said the little brown cow to the little white goat, "I love you,
But I'll stand no old buck from a kid like you."
Love and laughter, makes you go dafter and dafter
Shortly after, came a little brown calf with a nanny goat's beard.

Said the little brown cow to the little white goat,
"I warn you, If you call me an old brown cow you'll get my goat."
Said the little brown lamb to the little pink pig, "I love you,
But why do you go snort instead of boo?"

Said the little brown lamb to the little pink pig, "I love you,
But a snort like you would be too bad by far."
Love and laughter, makes you go dafter and dafter
Shortly after, every little lamb had a trotter and a snout.

Said the little brown lamb to the little pink pig, "I love you.
So the little lambs now have pimples on their pork.
