Gingerbread Poems and Songs

Four Gingerbread Men

Four gingerbread men sat on a tray.
The first one said, “Let’s run away!”
The second one said, “Where will we run?”
The third one said, “We’ll have some fun!”
The fourth one said, “We’ll be eaten if we stay.”
So the gingerbread men all ran away!

5 Gingerbread Men

Five little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

Four little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

Three little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

Two little gingerbread men lying on a tray,
One jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

One little gingerbread man lying on a tray,
He jumped up and ran away.
Shouting "Catch me, catch me, catch me if you can
I run really fast, I'm a gingerbread man!"

No more gingerbread men lying on a tray,
They all jumped up and ran away.
Oh, how I wish they had stayed with me to play.
Next time I'll eat them before they run away.

Gingerbread Men

Stir a bowl of gingerbread
Smooth and spicy brown
Roll it with a rolling pin
up and up and down

With a cookie cutter,
make some little men.
Put them in the oven
'til half past ten!
