Sing a Song

Autumn Leaves Are Falling Down
(Tune: London Bridge)

Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down, down to the ground.
(Hold both hands up high, as you wiggle your fingers and bring them down towards the ground)

Take a rake and rake them up, rake them up, rake them up.
Take a rake and rake them up, on the ground.
(Pretend to rake leaves)

Make a pile and jump in, and jump in, and jump in.
Make a pile and jump in, on the ground.
(Pretend to make a pile of leaves and then jump in)
