The Old Grey Hen

French, Written by: Unknown, Copyright: Unknown

We've got an old grey hen,
In our chicken pen,
She will lay a very pretty egg,
For a boy by whose name is Ben*,
She will lay a very pretty egg,
For a boy if he goes to sleep.
Sleep, Ben*, sleep.

We've got a big brown dog,
Sleeping on a log,
He will bring a pretty little ball
For a boy whose name is Bobby*,
He will bring a pretty little ball
For a boy if he goes to sleep.
Sleep, Bobby*, sleep.

We've got a little fish,
Swimming in a dish,
She will tell a funny fishy tale
To a girl whose name is Zoe*,
She will tell a funny fishy tale
To a girl if she goes to sleep,
Sleep, Zoe*, sleep.

(*Use any boy or girl's name.)
