Penguin Rhymes

Three Little Penguins
Three little penguins, dressed in white and black.
Waddle, waddle forward and waddle right back!
Three little penguins, in a funny pose,
They are wearing their evening clothes.
Their suits are black and their vests are white.
They waddle to the left and they waddle to the right.
They stand on the ice and they look very neat,
As they waddle along on their little flat feet. 
Five Little Penguins
Orginial Author Unknown

Five little penguins
Were sliding near the shore,
One dove in,
And then there were four.

Four little penguins
Were waddling toward the sea,
One went swimming
And then there were three.

Three little penguins
Were sniffling with the flu
One went to sleep
And then there were two.

Two little penguins
Were laying in the sun
One got too hot.
And then there was one.

One little penguin
Went looking for some fun
He crawled into a cave
And then there were none.

Ten little penguins
Their suits are black and their vests are white. 
They waddle to the left and they waddle to the right.

Six Little Penguins
Orginial Author Unknown

Six little penguins off an iceberg did dive,
One bumped his beak, then there were five.

Five little penguins swam the ocean floor,
One saw a whale, then there were four.

Four little penguins spun around, whee-ee!
One spun off, then there were three!

Three little penguins, with nothing to do,
One went fishing, then there were two.

Two little penguins, having lots of fun,
One fell off, then there was one.

One little penguin, when the day was done,
Went home to sleep, then there were none.

Penguin Songs

I'm a Little Penguin Two Feet High
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot) 

I'm a little penguin, 
Two feet high. 
I am a bird, 
But I can't fly. 
Look at how I swim 
Out in the sea: 
I'm as fast 
As fast can be! 

I'm a Little Penguin White and Black
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot) 

I'm a little penguin, 
White and black, 
White on my front, 
And black in back. 
Look at how I waddle 
By the sea: 
I'm as cute 
As cute can be!

Penguins Having Fun
(Tune:  Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

Penguins, penguins having fun
Waddling in the winter sun.
Waddling fast and waddling slow,
Waddling to and waddling fro.
Penguins, penguins having fun
Waddling in the winter sun.

Little Penguin
by Victoria Smith

I'm a little penguin short and fat,
Wearing my tuxedo without any hat.
I live in Antarctica where I splash and play,
Whales, sharks, and leopard seals make me run away.

I'm a Little penguin
I'm a little penguin,
Black and white.
Short and wobbly,
An adorable sight.

I can't fly at all,
but I love to swim.
So I'll waddle to the water
And dive right in!

I Know a Little Penguin
I know a little penguin
Who sat on some ice blocks.
He lived in the Antarctica
And he climbed on some rocks!
He snapped at a walrus,
And he slid on the ice.
Then he snapped at a whale,
That wasn't very nice.
The penguin was hungry
He didn't need a dish.
He jumped into the ocean
To catch him some fish.

I'm a Little Penguin

(Tune: I'm A Little Teapot)

I'm a little penguin round and fat
Here is my beak, here is my hat.
Winter days are coming, hear me shout,
"Please don't toss my mittens out!"

I'm a little penguin on the ice.
I think cold is very nice.
I can hop around first once, then twice.
I think ice is very nice.
