Five Little Jack-O-Lanterns
Five little jack-o-lanterns (One hand up)
sitting on a gate.
The first one said (Point to thumb)
"My, it's getting late."
The second one said, (Pointer finger)
"I hear a noise."
The third one said, (Middle finger)
"It's just a lot of boys."
The forth one said, (Ring finger)
"Come on let's run."
The fifth one said, (Little finger)
"It's just Halloween fun."
"Puff" went the wind
And out went the light (Close fingers into fist)
And away went the jack-o-lanterns (Open hand, fingers run behind back)
On Halloween night.
