Little Bo Peep

Lyrics

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
And bring their tails behind them.

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.

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 'em!

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.

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.

A different set of words

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn't know where to find them
Leave them alone, and they'll come home
Wagging their tails behind them.

Little Bo-Peep
Has lost her sheep,
And does not know,
Where to find them.
Leave them alone,
And they will come home,
And bring their tails
Behind them.

This is another ending that you can use

She heaved a sigh, and wiped her eye,
And over the hillocks went rambling
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should,
To tack each one to its lambkin.

You can also sing this short version

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they’ll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them.

Pieces er lige begyndt at lave negeklalker – har selv en rød, sort og en armygrøn (!!) de holder fantastisk, kan dog være lidt svære at fÃ¥ pÃ¥, hvis der ikke er meget lak pÃ¥ børsten. min rekort er 3 dage uden én eneste lille skramme UDEN overlak!
