MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB.
Copyright, 1888, by Geo. Molineux.
Oh, Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went that lamb was sure to go;
It followed her to school one day, but that was 'gainst the rule,
It made the children, laugh and play to see a lamb in school.
And so the teacher turned it out, but still it lingered near.
And waited patiently about till Mary did appear;
And then it went to her And laid its head upon her arm,
As if to say, I'm not afraid, you'll keep me from all harm.
The lamb grew old and contrary, with fleece as white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went the lamb would not go;
It would not follow her one day, she whipped it for the spell.
The family had it fried nest day, and it just went very well,
It just went very well.
