Old Macdonald had a farm

♪♪ Old Macdonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on his 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 ♪♪

Sound Familiar?

There are very few activities which bring as much joy as a group song – it’s really always fun. This one might be a little tough for me and my fellow lexiophiles contributors though, and there seems to be some discord regarding the noises made by Old Macdonalds farm-residents. While we all can agree on “Moo” and “Meow”… it would appear the similarities stop there. There goes verse three!

I guess even though dogs, roosters or donkeys are the same everywhere, when human beings try to imitate them the sound is always different. It’s a chorus of “au-au,” “bau-bau,” “woof-woof,”… and that’s only the beginning…

So let´s check if you can recognize which country the following “dogs” and his other farm animal friends are from? The answers can be found in the comments below.
