Along came a wave and then there were two.
2 little seashells lying in the sun,
Along came a wave and then there was one.
1 little seashell left all alone,
Put it in your pocket and take it home.

Rhyme: Five Little Snowmen

Five Little Snowmen standing round my door.
This one melted and then there were four.
Four little snowmen beneath a green pine tree,
This one melted and then there were three.
Three little snowmen with caps and mittens blue.
This one melted and then there were two.
Two little snowmen standing in the sun,
This one melted and then there was one.
One little snowman started to run.
But he melted away and then there was none.
