"Sheep Shearing"

           
    1. Go get the sheep, we're clipping today,
Clipping their wool, yes, clipping their wool
So we can knit some stockings for you,
Then we shall dance till morning.
   
      Refrain    
      Surr, surr, surr, surr, surr, surr,
Wheel spins around, now hear the sound;
Surr, surr, surr, surr, surr, surr,
Then we shall dance till morning.
   
   
2.

Tell mother dear we're carding today,
Carding the wool, yes, carding the wool
So we can knit a scarf for her, too,
Then we shall dance till morning.
