Farmer in the Dell



The farmer in the dell
The farmer in the dell
Hi-ho the dairy-o
The farmer in the dell

The farmer takes a wife
The farmer takes a wife
Hi-ho the dairy-o
The farmer takes a wife

Repeat with:

Wife takes a child
Child takes a dog
Dog takes a cat
Cat takes a rat
Rat take the cheese
Cheese stands alone

Actions: The group stands in a circle, holding hands. A girl
designated as the
Farmer stands in the middle of the circle. By the end of the
first verse, she picks
someone in the circle to be the Wife. By the end of the second
verse, the Wife
must pick someone to come and be the Child. This repeats to the
end of the song.
When the Cheese is chosen, everyone else returns to the circle
except the Cheese,
who stands alone in the middle while the verse is sung.
