Halloween Song – Five Little Pumpkins

Last week I brought my two kids to pick out Halloween costumes. My son’s going to be a zombie, he’s 11. He loves those old fashioned Halloween characters. My four year old daughter has been talking about how she wants to fly. So she chose to be a fairy. I put the costume on her and she asked, “How do you get the wings to flap?” Kids can be very funny at times.

In anticipation of October 31st, here’s a Halloween song…

Five Little Pumpkins

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,
“I’m ready for some fun!”
OOOOOOOH, went the wind
And OUT went the light (clap on “out”)
And the five little pumpkins
Rolled out of sight.

Enjoy the season! Soon it will be winter.


P.S. I’m looking for more Halloween songs, poems, jokes and traditions (from around the world) to post. I’d appreciate it if anyone would like to send me any.
