Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One for the master,
One for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One to mend the jerseys
one to mend the socks
and one to mend the holes in
the little girls’ frocks.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
3 bags full.

I believe that I have also heard it where the little boy, “cries in the lane” instead of “lives down the lane”.

There is an interesting article about the history of this nursery rhyme on Suite 101. on that site they have a version with, “And none for the little boy / Who cries in the lane.”

See see my play mate,
Come out and play with me,
And bring your dollies three.

Climb up my apple tree,
Slide down my rainbow,
Into my cellar door,

And we’ll be friends,
Forever more, more, more!

Here is an enemy version of this song. For some reason I remember this one more.

Say say my enemy
Come out and fight with me
And bring your weapons three
Climb up my torture tree
Slide down my razor blade
Into my snake pit
And we’ll be enemies
Forever more more more more shut the door.

Other versions of this song – like here is one from NIH – a have slightly different item that they are sliding down.

Oh PLAYMATE, come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three.
Climb up my apple tree,
Look down my rain barrel
Slide down my cellar door
And we’ll be jolly friends forever more.

Or here is another one from gameskidsplay.net.

Say say oh playmate
Come out and play with me
and bring your family 3
climb up your apple tree
slide down my rain spout
into my cellar door
and we’ll be jolly friends
forever more more more
