Five Little Firefighters

Five firefighters sit very still,
Until they see a fire on top of a hill,
Number one rings the bell, ding-dong,
Number two pulls his big boots on,
Number three jumps on the fire engine red,
Number four puts a fire hat on her head,
Number five drives the fire truck to the fire,
As the big yellow flames go higher and higher.
Whoooooo-oooooo! Whoooooo-oooooo!
Hear the fire truck say,
As all of the cars get out of the way.
Shhhhhh goes the water from the fire hose spout,
And quicker than a wink the fire is out!
