The Farmyard

Lyrics

(English folk song)

Up was I on my father’s farm,
On a Mayday morning early,
Feeding of my father’s cows
On a Mayday morning early.
With a moo, moo, here,
And a moo, moo, there,
Here a moo, there a moo,
Here a pretty moo.
Six pretty maids come and gang along o’ me,*
To the merry green fields and the farmyard.

Up was I on my father’s farm,
On a Mayday morning early,
Feeding of my father’s goats
On a Mayday morning early.
With a nan, nan, here,
And a nan, nan, there,
Here a nan, there a nan,
Here a pretty nan.
Six pretty maids come and gang along o’ me,*
To the merry green fields and the farmyard.

Add more animals with their sounds…

*Optional: Sing, “All my friends, come and go along with me”
