The Little Red Hen Song

Tune: Mulberry Bush

This is the way I plant the seed, Plant the seed, plant the seed, This is the way I plant the seed, So early in the morning. This is the way I cut the wheat, Cut the wheat, cut the wheat, This is the way I cut the wheat, So early in the morning. This is the way I go to the mill, Go to the mill, go to the mill, This is the way I go to the mill, So early in the morning. This is the way I make the dough, Make the dough, make the dough, This is the way I make the dough, So early in the morning. This is the way I bake the bread, Bake the bread, bake the bread, This is the way I bake the bread, So early in the morning. This is the way I eat the bread, Eat the bread, eat the bread, This is the way I eat the bread, So early in the morning.
