Sung to: "Baa Baa, Black Sheep”

This Little Cow
This little cow eats grass
This little cow eats hay
This little cow drinks water
This little cow runs away
This little cow lies in the grass all day
Let's tickle, tickle, tickle her until she wants to play.

Three Pigs So Squeaky Clean
Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a great big THUD
Then there were two clean squeaky pigs.
