Lyrics

Verse 1

Once upon a time, there were two sheep,

And mighty chatty sheep were they.

Every afternoon, they'd have a "baa baa baa."

This is what they'd say. 


Students listen to two sheep chatting. 


Verse 2

Once upon a time, there were two sheep,

And mighty chatty sheep were they.

I gotta go and take a walk,

So tell me what they say.


Students echo the two sheep chatting. 


Verse 3

Once upon a time, there were two sheep,

And mighty chatty sheep were they.

If one of them were to baa at you,

Tell me what you'd say. 


Students improvise baa conversations with the sheep.
