1. Five Little Pumpkins Sitting On A Gate – Kiboomers

Lyrics:

Five little pumpkins sitting 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 and run and run”
The fifth one said, “We’re ready for some fun”
Then “Ooh” went the wind and out went the lights
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight
Why don’t we do it again?

You sing along with me this time
Five little pumpkins sitting 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 and run and run”
And the fifth one said, “We’re ready for some fun”
Then “Ooh” went the wind and out went the lights
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight

The turkey hokey pokey!
You put your right wing in.

5. Dingle Dangle Scarecrow – The Berry Patch

Lyrics:

When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed
Up jumped the scarecrow
And this is what he said
I’m a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy, floppy hat

I can shake my hands like this
I can shake my feet like that
When all the hens were roosting
And the moon behind a cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
And shouted very loud
I’m a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy, floppy hat

I can shake my hands like this
I can shake my feet like that
I’m a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy, floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
I can shake my feet like that
