Cinco Ratoncitos

This is an excellent rhyme in Spanish. I enjoy making "el gato" sound particularly evil.

Cinco ratoncitos
de colita gris,
mueven las orejas,
mueven la nariz,
1, 2, 3, 4, corren al rincón,
porque viene el gato, a comer ratón!

Show five fingers
Wiggle your "tail"
Wiggle ears
Wiggle nose
Count 1, 2, 3, 4, then "run" your hand away
Become a cat

English version
Five little mice
With tails of grey
Wiggling their ears
And noses while they play
1, 2, 3, 4 run off through the house
Because the cat is prowling to eat some mouse
