sheepsheepsheepLittle Bo Peepsheep
Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,

And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, 
and they'll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.


sheep Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating;
But when she awoke, 
she found it a joke,
For still they all were fleeting.


sheep Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She found them indeed, 
but it made her heart bleed,
For they'd left all their tails behind them!


sheep It happened one day, 
as Bo-peep did stray
Unto a meadow hard by--
There she espied 
their tails side by side,
All hung on a tree to dry.


sheep She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye,
And over the hillocks she raced;
And tried what she could, 
as a shepherdess should,
That each tail should be 
properly placed.
