Lyrics:
Old Macdonald had a farm,
E-i-e-i-o!

And on that farm he had a cow,
E-i-e-i-o!
With a moo, moo here and a moo, moo there,
Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo, moo,
Old MacDonald had a farm,
E-i-e-i-o!

Suggestions for other verses
And on that farm he had a sheep
,
E-i-e-i-o!
With a ba, ba here and a ba, ba there,
Here a ba, there a ba, everywhere a ba, ba,

And on that farm he had a horse,
E-i-e-i-o!
With a neigh, neigh here and a neigh, neigh there,
Here a neigh, there a neigh, everywhere a neigh, neigh,

And on that farm he had a dog,
E-i-e-i-o!
With a woof, woof here and a woof, woof there,
Here a woof, there a woof, everywhere a woof, woof,

And on that farm he had a hen,
E-i-e-i-o!
With a bawk, bawk here and a bawkbawk there,
Here a bawk, there a bawk, everywhere a bawkbawk,
