Mary had a little lamb

Mary had a little lamb
With fleece as white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went
Her lamb was sure to go.

It followed her to school one day
Which was against the rule
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out
But still it lingered near
And waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear.

What makes the lamb love Mary so ?
The eager children cried.
Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know.
The teacher then replied.
