Turned him out, turned him out
And so the teacher turned him out
But still he lingered near
And waited patiently
Patiently, patiently
And waited patiently
Till Mary did appear

Its fleece was white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went

Everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go

He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

They all marched up to the top of the hill
with a hup, two, three, four, drilling their drill

Now when you’re up, you’re up,
And when you’re down, you’re down,
And when you’re only half-way up,
You’re neither up nor down.
