Farm Sounds
tune: Wheels on the Bus)
By John Saltsman

The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo,
Moo, moo, moo -- moo, moo, moo.
The cows in the barn go moo, moo, moo,
All around the farm.

Other verses:
... pigs in the pen go oink, oink, oink
... hens in the coop go cluck, cluck, cluck
... rooster on the fence goes cock-a-doodle-do
... ducks in the pond go quack, quack, quack
... lambs on the hill go baa, baa, baa
... bunnies in the hutch go (silently wiggle nose with finger)

Take Me Out to the Barnyard
(tune: Take Me Out to the Ballgame)
by Judy Hall
Take me out to the barnyard.
Take me out there right now.
Show me the cows, pigs and horses, too.
I hear an oink and a neigh and a moo.
There are chickens laying their eggs.
If they don't lay it's a shame.
Oh, it's one, two, three eggs today,
And I'm glad I came.

These songs, along with other cute poems and rhymes can be found at Pro Teacher.
