Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
First one said, "Oh my, it's getting late!"
Second one said "There are witches in the air,"
Third one said, "but we don't care!"
Fourth one said, "Let's run and run and run."

And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.

I'm an elephant
Strong and elegant
Stomping through the jungle
Making the ground rumble.

I'm an elephant
Strong and elegant
Stomping through the jungle
Making the ground rumble.

In the forest, you can find me
Trunk in front and tail behind me
Footsteps echo just like thunder
Those around me they watch in wonder

I'm an elephant
Strong and elegant
Stomping through the jungle
Making the ground rumble.

Every time I jump
I really make a thump,
When I stomp my knees
Monkey falls from trees.

Every time I jump
I really make a thump,
When I stomp my knees
Monkey falls from trees.

In the forest, you can find me
Trunk in front and tail behind me
Footsteps echo just like thunder
Those around me they watch in wonder

I'm an elephant
Strong and elegant
Stomping through the jungle
Making the ground rumble.

I'm an elephant
Strong and elegant
Stomping through the jungle
Making the ground rumble.
