Squishy, squashy, felt so good

The farmer took one llama out

"Hmm, hmm, hmm!" the llama did shout!


Four little llamas…

Three little llamas…

Two little llamas…

One little llama…


No little llamas rolled in the mud

They all looked so clean and good

The farmer turned his back and then

Those llamas rolled in the mud again!

Four little, five little, six little llamas,

Seven little, eight little, nine little llamas,

Ten little llamas jump!


Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little llamas.

Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump little llamas.

Sit down and go to sleep!

Hmm, hmm, llama,

Have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir,

Three bags full.

And one for the dame,

And one for the little boy

Who lives down the lane.

Hmm, hmm, llama,

Have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir,

Three bags full.
