Gingerbread Songs and Rhymes

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
Till half past ten!

Eat, Eat, Your Gingerbread Boy Tune: Row, Row, Row, Your Boat
Eat, eat, your Gingerbread Boy,
Before he runs away.
Faster, faster, faster please,
Don’t let him get away!

Catch, catch the Gingerbread Boy,
Catch him, yes, today.
Faster, faster, faster still,
For he has run away.

Say bye-bye to the
Gingerbread Boy.
Say good-bye today.
Say so long for he is gone.
The fox ate him today.
