**Five Little Cowgirls (Source unknown)
5 little cowgirls sitting on a gate.
The first one said, “This rodeo’s great.”
The second one said, “I love the clowns.”
The third one said, “I like the sounds.”
The fourth one said, “Can you ride a bull?”
The fifth one said, “No, but it sure looks cool!”
Then buzz went the bell, and the gate flew open–
And off went the cowgirls, ridin’ and ropin’

**I’m a Little Cowboy
I’m a little cowboy.
Here is my hat
(point to self, then to hat)
Here are my spurs
(point to your heels)
And here are my chaps
(pat legs)
As soon as I get up,
(stretch, pretend to wake up)
I work all day
(pretend to lasso a cow)
I get on my horse
(pretend to get on a horse)
And ride away.
(Pretend to gallop on a horse)
