the wise mother duck

(c) Debbie Carroll

Here is the mother duck looking so fine

And her four little baby ducks, all in a line

Quack, Quack, Quack, Quack!


Wherever the mother duck decides to go

Along come the baby ducks, all in a row

Up – Down – Up – Down – Up – Down – Up – Down


The wise mother duck finds her nest in the grass

And the four little baby ducks are home at last


[You can find this rhyme in The Eensy Weensy Book of Little Fingerplays]
