Chant (similar to “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on Bed”)

Five baby pumpkins rockin’ in the patch.

One rolled over and hit the thatch.

Mama called the farmer and the farmer said: “Do that again and you’ll crack your head!

“Four baby pumpkins rockin’ in the patch.

One rolled over and hit the thatch.

Mama called the farmer and the farmer said: “Do that again and you’ll crack your head!”

And so on–Last verse:  One little pumpkin rockin’ in the patch.It rolled over and hit the thatch.Mama called the farmer and the farmer said:  “It must be time for you to go to bed!”


This Pumpkin is Happy (make a happy face)

This Pumpkin is Sad (make a sad face)

This Pumpkin is sleepy (make a sleepy face)

And This Pumpkin is MAD (make a mad face)

Chop Them Up in Pieces Small

For Pumpkin Pie The Best of All


3 little witches on Halloween night, sang and danced by the pumpkins light.

The first little witch sang a queer little song :diddle diddle diddle ding dang dong”,

The second little witch did a dance with her broom 1,2,3, and boom boom boom,

The third little witch did a trick with her hat, she tipped it tapped and out flew a bat.

3 little on Halloween night swoosed their brooms and out went the lights.


Halloween Is Here

One little two little three little witches

Flying over haystacks jumping over ditches

Sliding down the moon and wearing out their britches

Hi ho halloweens here!


Five Little Scarecrows

Five little scarecrows, Five little scarecrows,

All in a line, All in a line,

Watching and waiting, Watching and waiting,

For Halloween time, For Halloween time.


Five Little Scarecrows (tune-Are You Sleeping?)

Five little scarecrows sitting in the garden,

Five little scarecrows sitting in the garden,

Five little scarecrows sitting in the garden,

Shooing the birds away.


Another Scarecrow Chant

Five little scarecrows Standing straight and tall

The wind blew hard And 1 did fall. (can remove a scarecrow 4,3,2,1, all)

Five little scarecrows all in a row,

Standing up tall ready to go

Along came a witch with a big black hat,

And scared one away just like that. (can remove scarecrows 4,3,2,1,all)


I am the Great Pumpkin (tune: Did You Ever See A Lassie)

I am the Great Pumpkin, Great Pumpkin, Great Pumpkin,
I am the Great Pumpkin,
Come dance with me.
For your friends are my friends,
and my friends are your friends,
I am the Great Pumpkin,
Come dance with me.
