5 Little Ducks

This is a classic song for children. It follows the popular pattern of counting down, but does so with an unmatched elegance and poignancy.
Most versions sound like the video below, but you can listen to my version in the audio files below.




  Voice only


Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away;
Mama duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only four little ducks came back.

Four little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away;
Mama duck said, "Quack, quack, quack, quack."
But only three little ducks came back.

Three little ducks...

Two little ducks...

One little duck...

Mama duck
Went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mama duck said,
"Quack, quack, quack, quack."
And all of the five little ducks came back.
