Little boy blue,
Come blow your horn!
The sheep’s in the meadow;
The cow’s in the corn
Where is the boy
Who looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack,
Fast asleep.

Little boy blue,
Come blow your horn!
The sheep’s in the meadow;
The cow’s in the corn
Will you wake him?
No, not I,
For if I do,
He’s sure to cry.
