Old MacDonald had a farm,
ee - i - ee - i - oh,
And on that farm he had a cow,
ee - i - ee - i - oh.

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 - oh.

[Song continues with verses for sheep, a pig, ducks and a horse]
