Five Silly Snowmen

Five Silly Snowmen dancing outside my door,
One rolled away, and then there were four.
Four Silly Snowmen climbing up a tree,
One fell down, and then
there were three.
Three Silly Snowmen
didn't know what to do,
One ran away, and then
there were two.
Two Silly Snowmen
baking in the sun,
One melted away, and then
there was one.
One Silly Snowman
dancing round and round,
He danced so much he
melted to the ground.
No more silly snowmen,
they all have gone away,
I hope I get to see them,
another winter's day!
