YUSUF ISLAM lyrics - Mary And The Little Lamb

YUSUF ISLAM
"Mary And The Little Lamb"

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

It followed her almost every day
And it made people laugh
You'd never see it work or play
And you'd never see it at the grass

Oh, there'll be loving a long, long time from now
But it'll be too late for him
Oh, there'll be kissing and hugging and holding tight
But it'll be too late for him

Now people try to talk to him
But it made no sense
'Cause just as they were getting clue
It'd be jumping another fence

It'd follow in her footsteps
And everywhere she went
It'd see him in there with her
But you'd never be seeing him

Oh, there'll be loving a long, long time from now
But it'll be too late for him
Yes, there'll be kissing and hugging and holding tight
But it'll be too late for him

[Short interlude]

Now one dark day, a big storm came
And it blew Mary's house away
All the walls had vanished
And there was nowhere for Mary to stay

She cried and cried and looked around
But everything was gone
Except for that one little lamb
He was still holding on

Oh, there'll be loving a long, long time from now
But there'll be no one more happy than him
'Cause every night the moon shines bright
She'll be cuddling up with him

Oh, there'll be loving a long, long time from now
But there'll be no one more happy than him
'Cause every night the stars shine bright
She'll be snuggling up with him
