"Old MacDonald Had a Farm" is a children's song and nursery rhyme about a farmer named MacDonald (or McDonald, Macdonald) and the various animals he keeps on his farm.

Each verse of the song changes the name of the animal and its respective noise. In many versions, the song is cumulative, with the animal sounds from all the earlier verses added to each subsequent verse. The song first appeared in the Barney franchise in Three Wishes.

Lyrics

[Note: Lyrics may vary]

Old MacDonald had a farm.

E-I-E-I-O

And on this farm, he had a cow.

E-I-E-I-O

With a moo moo here, and a moo moo there.

Here a moo, There a moo,

Everywhere a moo moo.

Old MacDonald had a farm.

E-I-E-I-O


Old MacDonald had a farm.

E-I-E-I-O

And on this farm, he had a duck.

E-I-E-I-O

With a quack quack here, and a quack quack there.

Here a quack, There a quack,

Everywhere a quack quack.

Old MacDonald had a farm.

E-I-E-I-O!


Old MacDonald had a farm.

E-I-E-I-O

And on this farm, he had a pig.

E-I-E-I-O

With an oink oink here, and an oink oink there.

Here an oink, There an oink,

Everywhere an oink oink.

Old MacDonald had a farm.

E-I-E-I-O!
