5 Little Pumpkins Lyrics

Five Little Pumpkins Lyrics printable, free printable Halloween activity

Here’s the lyrics to the classic poem!

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
First one said “Oh my, it’s getting late!”
Second one said “There are witches in the air,”
Third one said “But we don’t care!”
Fourth one said “Let’s run and run and run.”
Fifth one said “I’m ready for some fun!”
Ooo Ooo went the wind and out went the lights,
And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.

I’ve provided a printable version for you as well. This page would be great for teaching fine motor skills. Provide colored pencils or thin line markers to color the small details on this poem page.

This is also a great way for young children to do some sight word work. For example, you could ask your child to circle the word “one” every time they see it.
