LITTLE BABY DUCKLINGS
Little baby ducklings – dash, dash, dash.
Jumped in the duck pond – splash, splash, splash!
When their Mother called them – quack, quack, quack!
Little baby ducklings – swam right back.

FOUR LITTLE DUCKS
Four little ducks went out one day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck, said, “Quack, Quack, Quack”
But only three little ducks came waddling back.

Three little ducks went out one day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck, said, “Quack, Quack, Quack”
But only two little ducks came waddling back.

Two little ducks went out one day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck, said, “Quack, Quack, Quack”
But only one little duck came waddling back.

One little duck went out one day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck said, “Quack, Quack, Quack,”
And no little ducks came waddling back.

Mother duck went out that day,
Over the hill and far away.
Mother duck said, “It’s time to come back”
And the four little ducks came waddling back.

DOWN AT THE POND

Tune:  “Down By The Station”

Down at the pond, early in the morning,
See the little ducks swimming in a row.
See the Mother duck, dive for her breakfast,
Up, down, up, down, watch her go!

Down at the pond, early in the morning,
See the little ducks, swimming in a row.
See the Mother duck, flap her wings just so,
Up she flys, her ducklings in tow!

OLD MAC DONALD
Tune:  “Old Mac Donald Had A Farm”

Old Mac Donald had a farm –E, I, E, I, O.
And on this farm he had a duck – E, I, E, I, O.
With a quack, quack, here and a quack, quack there.
Here a quack, there a quack, everywhere a quack, quack.
Old Mac Donald had a farm – E, I, E, I, O.

LITTLE BABY DUCKLINGS

Little baby ducklings, all brand new,
Fat ones, skinny ones, short ones, too.
But the biggest duck, with feathers on his back,
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack.
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack,
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack.
