Smooth and spicy brown.

Up and up and down.

Make some little men.
Put them in the oven
Till half past ten!

Five little gingerbread men hanging on a tree,
The first one said, "Im so cute, look at me!"
The second one said, "I can't wait 'til Santa is here."
The third one said, "I wonder if hell bring Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer."
The fourth one said, "Pssst, be quiet, cant you hear?"
The fifth one whispered, "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

Gingerbread Man Song
(Tune: The Muffin Man]

Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man,
The Gingerbread Man, the Gingerbread Man?
Oh, do you know the Gingerbread Man,
Who ran and ran and ran?

He said, "Catch me if you can,
If you can, if you can."
He said, "Catch me if you can,"
Then ran and ran and ran.

I can run like the Gingerbread Man.
The Gingerbread Man, the Gingerbread Man.
I can run like the Gingerbread Man,
Now catch me if you can.
(Author unknown)

5 Little Gingerbread Men

5 Little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting, "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can . . .
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

4 little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting, "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can . . .
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

3 little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting, "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can . . .
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

2 little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting, "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can . . .
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

1 little gingerbread man lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting, "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can . . .
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"
No more gingerbread men lying on a tray,

They all jumped up and ran away.
Oh, how I wish they had stayed with me to play.
Next time I'll eat them before they run away.
