Maja har et lite lam, lite lam, lite lam.
Maja har et lite lam, hun er så glad i det.

Og når hun går på veien fram, veien fram, veien fram,
og når hun går på veien fram, så følger lammet med.

Maja gikk på skolevei, skolevei, skolevei
Maja gikk på skolevei, i sol og sønna-vind.

Og spør om det ble hurlumhei, hurlumhei, hurlumhei
og spør om det ble hurlumhei, da lammet ble med inn.

Men frøken sa: Du må nok gå, må nok gå, må nok gå
Men frøken sa: Du må nok gå, du passer ikke her.

Men hvorfor er det lammet blitt, lammet blitt, lammet blitt,
Men hvorfor er det lammet blitt så glad i Maja, tro?

Jo, hun er glad i lammet sitt, lammet sitt, lammet sitt,
jo hun er glad i lammet sitt, sa frøken blidt og lo.


Maja har et lite lam - diktet



Maja har et lite lam.
Hun er så glad i det,
Og når hun går på veien fram,
så følger lammet med.

Maja gikk på skolevei
i sol og sønna-vind,
Og spør om det ble hurlumhei,
da lammet ble med inn.

Men frøken sa: "Du må nok gå.
Du passer ikke her".
Da trippet lammet ut på tå
og sto og ventet der.

Men hvorfor er det lammet blitt
så glad i Maja, tro?
Jo, hun er glad i lammet sitt,
sa frøken blidt og lo.

Mary had a little lamb - the poem



Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near,
And waited patiently about,
Till Mary did appear.

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
The eager children cry.
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
The teacher did reply.

Mary had a little lamb - the song



Written by Sarah Josepha Hale, editor of Godey's Lady's Book (1830s) | Copyright Unknown

Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow

And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go

It followed her to school one day
School one day, school one day
It followed her to school one day
Which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school

And so the teacher turned it out,
Turned it out, turned it out,
And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near

And waited patiently about,
Patiently about, patiently about,
And waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
Love Mary so? Love Mary so?
"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
The eager children cry

"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
Loves the lamb, you know, loves the lamb, you know
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
The teacher did reply
