Like ducklings, this one is suitable for bathtubs or dry land…

Five little ducks went out one day
(Hold up five fingers)
Over the hills and far away
(Wave bye-bye)
Mother duck said “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
But only four little ducks came back.
(Hold up four fingers)

Four little ducks went out one day…
(Hold up four fingers)
Over the hills and far away
(Wave bye-bye)
Mother duck said “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
But only three little ducks came back.
(Hold up three fingers)

Three little ducks went out one day…
(Hold up three fingers)
Over the hills and far away
(Wave bye-bye)
Mother duck said “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
But only two little ducks came back.
(Hold up two fingers)

Two little ducks went out one day…
(Hold up two fingers)
Over the hills and far away
(Wave bye-bye)
Mother duck said “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
But only one little duck came back.
(Hold up one finger)

One little duck went out one day…
(Hold up one fingers)
Over the hills and far away
(Wave bye-bye)
Mother duck said “Quack, quack, quack, quack”
But none of the five little ducks came back
(open hands in an ‘empty’ gesture)

Sad mother duck went out one day…
(Sing it sadly and slowly)
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said “QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!”
And all of the five little ducks came back.
(Wave hand with all five fingers!)
