I’m A Little Scarecrow Song:

(original author unknown)

(Sung to: “I’m a little Teapot”)

I’m a little scarecrow,
Raggedy and worn

I wear a hat,
And a shirt that”s torn

When the crows come,
I wave and shout,

“Away from my Garden
Get on Out”

Scarecrow Song:

(original author unknown)

(Sung to: “Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear Turn Around”)

Scarecrow, Scarecrow,

turn around.

Scarecrow, scarecrow,

jump up and down,

Scarecrow, scarecrow,

arms up high,

Scarecrow, Scarecrow,

wink one eye,

Scarecrow, scarecrow,

bend your knee,

Scarecrow, scarecrow,

flap in the breeze,

Scarecrow, scarecrow,

climb into bed,

Scarecrow, scarecrow,

rest your head.

Busy Little Scarecrow

Busy little scarecrow,

standing high,

I look around,

and I watch the sky,

When the crows fly down,

I know what to do,

I flap my arms,

and yell shoo, shoo, shoo!
