The Farmer's in the Dell
Last updated: 22.04.17

The Farmer's in the Dell is one of a trio of song and dance items which I use to warm-up audiences. The other two song and dances are being the notorious Royal Navy "Black Cat" and The Okey Cokey. The song itself is a nursery item for toddlers but it goes down very well here in Germany as it is completely unknown. They all always are surprised by the punch verse of they all beat the dog which they generally all join in with gusto.
