Autumn Labor
My poor back will surely break,
(Rub back; make face as if in pain.)
If one more leaf I have to rake!
(Hold up one finger; make raking motions.)
Crusty, rusty brown leaves,
Dusty, blustery red leaves,
Crunching, bunching, scrunching beneath my feet.
(Walk in place.)
In a pile of crispy leaves, I'll find a welcome seat!
(Sit down on floor.)

Autumn Leaves
Autumn leave are turning,
Turning, turning,
Autumn leaves are turning orange and brown.
(Slowly turn in circles.)

Autumn leaves are dancing,
Dancing, dancing,
Autumn leaves are dancing in the wind.
(Dance around.)

Autumn leaves are falling,
Falling, falling,
Autumn leaves are falling to the ground.
(Flutter gently toward the ground.)

Autumn leaves are laying,
Laying, laying,
Autumn leaves on laying on the ground. Shhh!
(Lay down on the floor and whisper words.)

Five Little Leaves
Five little leaves so bright and gay
(Hold up five fingers.)
Were dancing about on a tree one day.
(Dance in place.)
The wind came blowing through the town,
(Sway with the wind.)
And one little leaf came tumbling down.
(Gently tumble to the ground.)

Four little leaves . . .

I'm An Acorn
I'm an acorn, small and brown,
Lying on the cold, cold ground.
Everybody steps on me,
That is why I'm cracked you see.

I'm a nut.
I'm a nut.
I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut.

Raking Leaves
I like to rake the leaves
(Make raking motion with hands.)
Into a great big hump .
(Pretend to pile leaves.)
Then I move back a bit,
(Take a step or two back.)
Bend my knees and jump!
(Bend knees, then jump.)

Scarecrow, Scarecrow
(similar to Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear)
Scarecrow, scarecrow, turn around;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, touch the ground;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms up high;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, touch the sky;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend down low;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, touch your toes;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, climb into bed;
Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your head.

It Must Be Autumn
to the tune of "When the Saints Go Marching In"
Oh, when the leaves fall off the trees,
Oh, when the leaves fall off the trees,
We know it must be autumn
When the leaves fall off the trees.

Leaves Are Falling
to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?"
Leaves are falling, leaves are falling,
All around, All around,
Brown and yellow leaves, red and orange too,
On the ground, On the ground.

The Leaves Are Falling Down
to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"
The leaves are falling down,
The leaves are falling down,
Fall is here, and winter's near,
The leaves are falling down.

The Leaves on the Trees
to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus"
The leaves on the trees are changing color,
Changing color, changing color,
The leaves on the trees are changing color,
All around the town.

The wind makes the leaves say "Swish, swish, swish,"
"Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish,"
The wind makes the leaves say "Swish, swish, swish,"
All around the town.

Then the leaves come tumbling down,
Tumbling down, tumbing down,
Then the leaves come tumbling down,
All around the town.

The leaves on the ground make crackling sounds,
Crackling sounds, crackling sounds,
The leaves on the ground make crackling sounds,
All around the town.

We'll rake them up into a pile,
Into a pile, into a pile,
We'll rake them up into a pile,
All around the town.

Little Brown Squirrel
to the tune of "Ten Little Indians"
Little brown squirrel hunts for nuts.
Little brown squirrel hunts for nuts.
Little brown squirrel hunts for nuts.
To eat during winter.

Little brown squirrel finds a nut.
Little brown squirrel finds a nut.
Little brown squirrel finds a nut.
To eat during winter.

Little brown squirrel takes it home.
Little brown squirrel takes it home.
Little brown squirrel takes it home.
To eat during winter.

Ten Little Leaves
to the tune of "Ten Little Indians"
One little, two little, three little leaves,
Four little, five little, six little leaves,
Seven little, eight little, nine little leaves,
Ten little leaves fell down.

Rake one up and that leaves nine,
Rake one up and that leaves nine,
Rake one up and that leaves nine,
Nine leaves on the ground.

Rake one up and that leaves eight....
Rake on up and that leaves seven....

Rake the last one up and then there are none,
Rake the last one up and then there are none,
Rake the last one up and then there are none,
No leaves on the ground.

Two Little Apples
to the tune of "This Old Man"
Way up high in a tree,
Two little apples smiled at me,
So I shook the tree as har-r-rd as I could
Down fell the apples -- Um-m-m-m, good!

| top of page |

We Are Pumpkins
to the tune of "Mary Had A Little Lamb"
We are pumpkins, big and round,
Big and round, big and round.
We are pumpkins, big and round,
Seated on the ground.
