Chickadee

Five little chickadees perched by the door
One flew away and then there were four

(CHO) Chickadee, chickadee, fly away,
Chickadee, chickadee, happy and gay(x2)

Four little chickadees perched in a tree,
One flew away and then there were three

(CHO)

Three little chickadees a'lookin' at you
One flew away and then there were two

(CHO)

Two little chickadees perched in the sun
One flew away and then there was one.

(CHO)

One little chickadee perched all alone
He flew away and then there were none.

This is a fun song to teach children numbers 1-5. It has an infectious rhythm that kids seem to love. I learned this one from Jenny Armstrong and kids at a Knoxville Dance Festival many moons ago.
