Story Songs

  1. Five Green Aliens

    Five green aliens flew into space (move hand like a ship through the air)

    The first one disappeared without a trace (hide thumb)

    The second one flew past the moon (hide finger)

    The third one waved "see you soon!" (hide finger)

    The fourth one took off towards the sun (hide finger)

    And the fifth one looked around "Where is everyone? (bring hand back down to the ground)

    Then woosh came the fuel and on came the light (shake fist and stretch out fingers)

    And the five green aliens went on another flight! (move hand up in the air like before)

  2. Four Little Aliens

    Four little aliens
    winking at me.
    One blast off,
    Then there were three!

    Three little aliens
    With nothing to do.
    One shot off,
    Then there were two!

    Two little aliens
    Afraid of the sun.
    One shot off,
    Then there was one!

    One little aliens
    Alone is no fun.
    It shot off,
    then there was none!
