“This was a funny little variation of the Mary Had A Little Lamb rhyme that was ummm… taught to me by ummm…someone…. ummm…when I was a kid… in school…. it went kind of like… Mary had a little lamb/ little lamb/ little lamb/ Mary had a little lamb her fleece was white as snow/ Mary brought the lamb to school/ lamb to school/ lamb to school/ Mary brought the lamb to school her teacher hated it/ School was canceled for a week/ for a week/ for a week/ School was canceled for a week just as Mary had planned.”
This was an interesting one because instead of a change in the lyrics of Mary Had A Little Lamb it was adding more verses to the song already. Almost as if it were adding to the cannon of Mary Had A Little Lamb. From the original song all we know about Mary was that she owned a lamb that had a very white fleece. Now we know that not only does she go to school like most kids, but she hates it and uses her lamb to get out of going to school like most children.
This seems like a modern update on the song especially for young kids beginning to feel the angst against going to school in general. It seems like it’s a part of the many ‘I hate school’ anthems.
