I had a wee hen, an a dear wee hen,
An a dear wee hennie tae me
An my hen tuck tuck tuckit
An my cock cockit an crew
Now everybody loves their cock
An surely I love my one too

I had a wee calf an a dear wee calf
An a dear wee calfie tae me
An my calf moo, moo, moo-it
An my hen tuck, tuck, tuckit
An my cock cockit an crew
Now everybody loves their cock
An surely I love my one too

I had a wee sheep an a dear wee sheep
An a dear wee sheepie tae me
An my sheep meh, meh, meh-it
An my calf moo, moo, moo-it

An my cock cockit an crew
Now everybody loves their cock
An surely I love my one too

I had a wee dog an a dear wee dog

An my sheep meh, meh, meh-it
An my calf moo, moo, moo-it
An my hen tuck, tuck, tuckit
An my cock, cockit an crew
Now everybody loves their cock
An surely I love my one too

(Mime hen's wings, cow's horns, sheep's horns, dog's paws, etc. and place both hands over the heart at 'love' sections)
