Lyrics

1. There was a pig went out to dig,
Christ-a-mas Day, Christ-a-mas Day,
here was a pig went out to dig,
Christ-a-mas Day in the morning.

2. There was a cow went out to plow…

3. There was a crow went out to sow…

4. There was a sheep went out to reap…

Ask students to write their own rhyming verses.

Change the tune to I Saw Three Ships, which you might find easier for kids to sing.
