Gingerbread Men Fingerplay & Chant
Five little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can...
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

Four little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can...
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

Three little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can...
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

Two little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can...

One little gingerbread man lying on a tray,
He jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can...
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

No more gingerbread men lying on a tray,
They all jumped up and ran away.
Oh, how I wish they had stayed with me to play.
Next time I'll eat them before they run away.
