Nursery rhyme
Mary had a little lamb
Adored the mammal so
She ate and drank, and slept with it
And told it all her woes

It even had a place in school
Next to the window seat
It left a little pool of drool
Upon a clean white sheet

But years went by and Mary left
Forgot the lamb was here
Became a nun, sang in the reft
Was Jesus’ bride and dear

Till one day in wintertime, though
Sheep cried: “What about me?
Give me a role in the barn; lo!
Under the Xmas tree.”
