5 Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first one says, 'oh my it's getting late'
The second one says, 'there are witches in the air'
The third one says, 'but we don't care'
The fourth one says, 'let us run and run'
The fifth one says, 'I am ready for some fun!'
Oooooohhhh went the wind and out went the light!
And, five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
