Do you know the pumpkin man?

Do you know the pumpkin man,
the pumpkin man, the pumpkin man?
Do you know the pumpkin man
his name is Dan.
He bakes the pumpkin pie you like
pie you like, pie you like,
He bakes the pumpkin pie you like
each and every night.

Five little pumpkins
Five little pumpkins (Hold up all 5 fingers)
Sitting on a gate
The first one said,
“Oh, my, it’s getting late!? (Look at wrist like checking the time)
The second one said,
“There are witches in the air!? (Point into the sky)
The third one said,
“But we don’t care!? (Shake finger like saying “no?)
The fourth one said,
“Let’s run and run and run!? (Move arms like you’re running)
The fifth one said,
“I’m ready for some fun!? (Point to face and smile)
OOOOOOOH, went the wind
And OUT went the light (Clap on “out?)
And the five little pumpkins (Hold up five fingers again)
Rolled out of sight. (Roll hands, one over the other)
