With an oink-oink here, and a moo-moo there, the song ends showing the most precious resident of all, a very young MacDonald! 21470 Old MacDonald Had a Farm 9780823444779 https://catalog.coolcat.org/iii/encore/search/C__Sold%20macdonald%20had%20a%20farm%20jane%20cabrera__Orightresult__U?lang=eng&suite=cobalt 0 [empty string] 6

Five Little Ducks

Five little ducks went out one day, (hold up five fingers)
Over the hill and far away. (hide fingers behind back)
Mother Duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack,” (open and close hand like a duck bill)
But only four little ducks came back. (hold up four fingers)

Repeat until there are no more ducks and for the last line sing:

And all of her five little ducks came back!
