Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, have you any wool?
Yes, sir, Yes, sir, three bags full
One for my master and one for my dame
And one for the little (girl/boy) who lives down the lane.
Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, have you any wool?
Yes, sir, Yes, sir, three bags full

Cluck, cluck, red hen, have you any eggs?
Yes sir, yes sir, as many as your legs.
One for your breakfast and one for your lunch;
Come back tomorrow and I'll have another bunch.
Cluck, cluck, red hen, have you any eggs?
Yes sir, yes sir, as many as your legs.

Moo, moo brown cow, have you milk for me?
Yes sir, yes sir, as tasty as can be.
Churn it into butter, make it into cheese,
Freeze it into ice cream or drink it if you please.
Moo, moo brown cow, have you milk for me?
Yes sir, yes sir, as tasty as can be.

Buzz, buzz busy bee, is your honey sweet?
Yes sir, yes sir, sweet enough to eat.
Honey on your muffin, honey on your cake,
Honey by the spoonful, as much as I can make.
Buzz, buzz busy bee, is your honey sweet?
Yes sir, yes sir, sweet enough to eat.

Background

This English traditional lullaby was first printed in 1744 in Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book. The lyrics have come down only slightly changed since then. The first verse is the traditional one. The last three we found on Wikipedia and thought they were a lot of fun.
