      FIVE BIRTHDAY CANDLES
      Five birthday candles, wish there were more.       Hold up 5 fingers
      Blow one out…                                      Blow on one finger and bend it down
      And now there are four.                            Hold up 4 fingers
      Four birthday candles, as pretty as can be.
      Blow one out…and now there are three.              Continue actions to suit fingerplay
      Three birthday candles, mother bought them
      new.
      Blow one out…and now there are two.
      Two birthday candles, birthday cakes are fun.
      Blow one out…and now there is one.
      One birthday candle, a birthday wish is fun.
      Blow it out…and now there are none!
