*Five Little Pirates (Source unknown.)
Five little pirates hear the captain roar.
One raised the black flag, and then there were four.
Four little pirates, sailing on the sea,
One tumbled overboard, and then there were three.
Three little pirates, swam the ocean blue,
One swam away, and then there were two.
Two little pirates standing in the sun,
One felt too hot, and then there was one.
One little pirate liked to have fun,
He found a treasure chest, and then there were none.

**Found these gems on Storytime Katie’s site.
