Autumn leaves

Leaves on the ground are turning,
Yellow, brown and red.
Smoke from the bonfire burning,
Climbing overhead.
Here comes Autumn to bring the mist and rain.
Summer has gone for another year,
Autumn's here again.


Falling leaves

All the leaves are falling down,
Orange, yellow, red and brown.
Falling softly as they do,
Over me and over you.
All the leaves are falling down,
Orange, yellow, red and brown.


Fifth of November

Please to remember
The fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason, and plot
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.

A rhyme about the Gunpowder Plot, where Guy Fawkes and co-conspirators attempted to blow up the British Parliament building. Now celebrated in Britain as 'Guy Fawkes night' or 'Bonfire Night'.


Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater,

Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
Had a wife but could not keep her.
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.


Ten Round Pumpkins

Ten round pumpkins, sitting on the wall,
Ten round pumpkins, sitting on the wall.
And if one round pumpkin,
Should accidentally fall.

There'll be, nine round pumpkins, sitting on the wall.
Nine round pumpkins, sitting on the wall.
And if one round pumpkin,
Should accidentally fall.

There'll be, eight round pumpkins, sitting on the wall.
Eight round pumpkins, sitting on the wall.
And if one.........

There'll be one round pumpkin, sitting on the wall,
One round pumpkin, sitting on the wall.
And if that round pumpkin,
Should accidentally fall,
There'll be no round pumpkins, sitting on the wall.

Sung to the tune of "Ten Green Bottles", this could be used as an alternative for Autumn and particularly Halloween


The Leaves on the trees

The leaves on the tree turn orange and brown,
orange and brown, orange and brown.
The leaves on the trees turn orange and brown,
All through the town.

The leaves on the trees come swirling down,
swirling down, swirling down.
The leaves on the trees come swirling down.
All through the town.

The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish,
Swish, swish, swish.
The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish,
All through the town.

(Sung to: "The Wheels on the Bus")
