Six Little Penguins
Original Author Unknown

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.

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.
