The Farmer in the Dell Lyrics – Free Printable PDF

“The Farmer in the Dell” is a nursery rhyme and singing game.

The German song “Es fuhr ein Bau’r ins Holz” seems to be the same rhyme, despite the different plot of the story, and it was first recorded in Germany in 1826. It was probably immigrants that brought it to North America. The melody is similar to that of A-Hunting We Will Go.
