"I Had a Little Rooster"


       
 
1.
I had a little rooster by the barnyard gate,
And that little rooster is my playmate,
And that little rooster goes cock-a-doodle-doo,
Doo doo, doo-doo, doo--doodle-doo!
 
       
 
2.
I have a little hen by the barnyard gate,
And that little hen is my playmate,
And that little hen goes cluck-a-cluck-a-cluck,
Cluck-cluck, cluck-cluck, cluck-cluck-a-cluck.
 
       
  3.

I have a little duck by the barnyard gate,
And that little duck is my playmate,
And that little duck goes quack-a-quack-a-quack,
Quack-quack, quack-quack, quack-quack-a-quack.

 
       
  4.

I have a little pig by the barnyard gate,
And that little pig is my playmate,
And that little pig goes oink-a-oink-a-oink,
Oink-oink, oink-oink, oink-oink-a-oink.

 
       
  5.

I have a little lamb by the barnyard gate,
And that little lamb is my playmate,
And that little lamb goes baa-baa-baa-baa.
Baa-baa, baa-baa, baa-baa, baa-baa.

 
       
  6.

I have a little turkey by the barnyard gate,
And that little turkey is my playmate,
And that little turkey goes gobble, gobble, gob.
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gob-gob.

 
       
  7.

I have a little cow by the barnyard gate,
And that little cow is my playmate,
And that little cow goes moo-moo-moo-moo,
Moo-moo, moo-moo, moo-moo, moo-moo.
