Old McDonald Had a Farm

All kids love singing Old MacDonald Had a Farm! Sing along using this video. This video has the lyrics running along with it.



This other YouTube video below changes the tune a little bit in the E-I-E-I-O part. It also has a cow named Kissi-Moo and a sheep named Betty... a really fun, groovy version of Old MacDonald!


The lyrics

In each verse, you choose an animal and its sound.

    Old MacDonald had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O.
    And on that farm he had a [ANIMAL], EE-I-EE-I-O,
    With a [ANIMAL NOISE TWICE] here and a [ANIMAL NOISE TWICE] there
    Here a [ANIMAL NOISE], there a [ANIMAL NOISE], everywhere a [ANIMAL NOISE TWICE]
    Old MacDonald had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O.
For example, using a cow as an animal, and MOO as the animal sound, we get:
	
   Old MacDonald had a farm, EE-I-EE-I-O.
    And on that farm he had a COW, EE-I-EE-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, EE-I-EE-I-O.

You can also omit the "with a" before the animal sound.
