Mary Had A Little Plan

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring
He fell out of bed and bumped his head

And couldn’t get up in the morning
Rain, rain go away, come again another day
Little Mary wants to play
Rain, rain go away

Mary had a little lamb, whose fleece was white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went, that lamb was sure to go
He followed her to school one day which was against the rules
But it made the children laugh and play to see a lamb at school
Well the teacher didn’t like the lamb so Mary had to bail
She jumped right in her rowing boat she knew it could not fail

She went row, row, row, your boat gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream
Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

She rowed that boat right down the stream to see what she could see
And on the banks they found a house, quite a site to see

Old Mcdonald had a farm
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo
And on that farm he had a cow
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo
With a (horn cow sound) here and a — — there
Here a bleat there a —, everywhere a — —
Old Mcdonald had a farm
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo

And on that farm he had a bullfrog
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo
With a (bass notes) here, and a — — there,
here a — there a — everywhere a — —
Old Mcdonald had a farm
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo

And on that farm he had a bird
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo
With a (piano notes) here, and a — — there,
here a — there a — everywhere a — —
Old Mcdonald had a farm
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo

And on that farm he had a rabbit
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo
With a (drum patters) here, and a — — there,
here a — there a — everywhere a ——
Old Mcdonald had a farm
Eya, ya, ya, ya yo

Well pretty soon the farm went wild, Old Mac had lost control
And everywhere they looked around the crew was on a roll

And this is what it sounded like…

The animals had run amuck, Mary grabbed the sheep and ran
She jumped back in her rowing boat to find her snoring man
His head was better, rain had stopped and soon they had a plan

Keep the sheep on solid ground, then you will say… Amen
