12. Old Samwise Gamgee Had a Farm

Sam and Rosie had thirteen kids.
Ai, Ai, Ooooh
Thirteen kids meant twenty-nine pets.
Ai, Ai, Ooooh.

With a bah bah here
And a neigh neigh there
Here a woof,
There a hoof,
Everywhere a squeel, squeel,

Sam and Rosie had thirteen kids,
Ai, Ai, Ooooh.


Sometimes they'd cry
Sometimes they'd giggle
Ai, Ai, Ooooh
But most times they'd just sit and wiggle
Ai, Ai, Ooooh

Is it ready yet?
And I'm hungry still
Will you please be quiet?
Will you please sit still?

Sam and Rosie had thirteen kids
Ai, Ai, Ooooh


One fine spring day, they ran away
Ai, Ai, Ooooh
The kids looked under rock and hay
Ai, Ai, Ooooh

Where could be Sam?
Rosie's disappeared?
They went and hid
And left us here.

One fine spring day, they ran away.
Ai, Ai, Ooooh!
