Once your baby is familiar with this rhyme, it’s especially fun if you pause
sometimes while she anticipates the BANG. She knows it’s coming!

Five fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up five fingers)
All of a sudden one went ‘BANG!’
(Clap hands loudly)

Four fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up four fingers)
All of a sudden one went ‘BANG!’

Three fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up three fingers)
All of a sudden one went ‘BANG!’

Two fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up two fingers)
All of a sudden one went ‘BANG!’

One fat sausage, frying in a pan,
(Hold up one finger)
All of a sudden it went ‘Bang!’

And there were NO sausages left!
(No fingers left up)
