背景[編輯]

[編輯]

原本首詩[編輯]

Mary had a little lamb,
Its 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.

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

瑪利有隻綿羊仔
佢身毛白雪雪
而瑪利去親邊度
隻羊都一定到

佢跟埋瑪利返學有日
咁校規唔准其實;
搞到班細佬笑又玩
喺學校見到綿羊仔

「點解綿羊仔咁鍾意瑪利?」
The eager children cry;
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,"
先生就話。

首歌[編輯]

1830年代, Lowell Mason 將首詩加上由 Mozart 寫嘅旋律[需要參考資料], 加咗啲重複句入去:

Mary had a little lamb,
little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
and 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."
The lamb, you know, the lamb, you know,
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,"
 the teacher did reply.
