Sing a Song
5 little pennies under my bed.
One rolled on the floor
And then there were 4 little pennies over by the tree,
A frog came and got one and now there were three.
Three little pennies under my shoe
Along came an ant and now there are two.
Two little pennies laying under the sun,
Soon came a caterpillar
Who put it on his back and then there was one.
One little penny who was all alone,
Rolled along until he found his home.
