Five Little Pumpkins

Words & Music:



Five little pumpkins sittin' on a gate.

The first one said, "Oh, my!  It's getting late!"

The second one said, "There are witches in the air!"

The third one said, "But, we don't care!"

The fourth one said, "Let's run!  Let's run!"

the fifth one said, "Isn't Hallowe'en fun?"

Ooooo!  Went the wind, and out went the light.

And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.



"The first one..." = point to your wrist as though you were checking the time.

"The second one..." = point to the sky and follow the witches on their brooms.

"The third one..." = shrug your shoulders.

"The fourth one..." = run in place.

"The fifth one..." = give a big grin.

"Ooooo!..." = make a motion with your palm out in front of you.

"out went..." = clap on the word "out"

"and the five..."  = hold up the five fingers of one hand.

"rolled out..."  roll one hand over the other in front of you
