The cow in barn goes moo, moo, moo,
Moo, moo, moo. Moo, moo, moo,
repeat
All around the farm.
The pig in the pen goes oink, oink, oink,...........
The hens in the coop go cluck..........
The lambs on the hill go baa,........
The ducks on the pond go quack......
Here Is The Barn
Here is the barn (Form a roof shape with your hands)
Where I like to go (Walk in place)
It's as tall as a tree (Point up overhead)
And cozy, you know (Hug body with arms)

Here is the barn, (Make a roof shape with your hands)
I'll go there with you (Walk in place)
To pet a sweet lamb (Pretend to pet a lamb)
And cuddle it, too! (Pretend to hug a lamb)
Eight Baby Pigs
Two mother pigs lived in a pen (thumbs)
Each had four babies and that made ten (fingers of both hands)
These four babies were black and white (fingers of one hand)
These four babies were black as night (fingers of the other hand)
All eight babies loved to play(wiggle fingers)
As they rolled and rolled in the mud all day! (roll hands)
