Five little pumpkins  Sitting on a gate
The first one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late!”
The second one said, “Let’s dance, let’s prance,
The third one said, “Now is our chance!”
The fourth one said, “Let’s run, run run!”
The fifth one said, “Let’s have some fun!”
When “ooooooh” went the wind
And out went the light
And the five little pumpkins
Rolled out of sight.

Other Lyrics

Some versions say:

The second one said, “There are witches in the air,”
The third one said, “But we don’t care.”
