As promised, here are the lyrics to the Elephant Counting Song that we have been using in storytime.
One little elephant went out to play
Upon a spider's web one day
He had such tremendous fun
that he called for another elephant to come.
Two little elephants...
Three little elephants...
Four little elephants...
Five little elephants went out one day
Upon a spider's web to play
The spider's web BROKE!
And they all fell down.
Typically, I repeat the verse until we reach the number ten. There are many versions of this song and I first heard it in Spanish. Dos Elefantes Lyrics .
