Pumpkin Trees

It’s harvest time & what do I see?
Pumpkins, pumpkins in a tree!
In a tree? That can’t be!
Where, oh where, should pumpkins be?
On the ground? Yes, on the ground!
That’s where pumpkins should be found !

Pumpkin, Pumpkin Sitting on a Wall

Pumpkin, pumpkin,
Sitting on a wall. (make a fist with one hand and put it on top of the other arm)
Pumpkin, pumpkin,
Tip and fall. (rock fist back and forth, make your fist fall off arm)
Pumpkin, pumpkin,
Rolling down the street. (roll one fist over the other)
Pumpkin, pumpkin,
Trick or treat! (throw arms up in the air, and shout)

Pumpkins on the Ground

Pumpkin, pumpkin on the ground
(crouch down)
How'd you get so big and round? 

(stretch arms and then make a circle)
Once you were a seed so small,

(pretend to hold a seed)
Now you are a great big ball! 

(make big circle with hands)
Pumpkin, pumpkin on the ground

(crouch down)
How'd you get so big and round? 

(stretch arms and make a great big circle)
