Songs
What Do the Farm Animals Say
Tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb

Little pigs say oink, oink, oink,
Oink, oink, oink, oink, oink, oink,
Little pigs say oink, oink, oink,
Oink, oink all day long.

Repeat: Baby cows say moo, moo, moo
Horses gallop all around
Chickens scramble for food and dust
Lamb say baa and run around
Kittens meow and chase the mice
Doggies bark and chase the cows
Roosters crow and eat the corn
Goats all butt and maah, maah, maah

Pig
I had a little pig,
And I fed it in a trough,
He got so big and fat,
That his tail popped off.
So, I got me a hammer,
And I got me a nail,
And I made that pig,
A wooden tail.

Piggies
"It's time for my piggies to go to bed,"
The nice big mother piggie said.
"Now I must count them up to see
If all my piggies came back to me.
One little piggy, two little piggies,
Three little piggies dear;
Four little piggies, five little piggies-
Yes they are all here.
They're the dearest little piggies alive-
One, two, three, four, five."
