"Six Little Ducks"


       
 
1.
Six little ducks that I once knew,
Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too,
 
    Refrain:  
    But the one little duck with the feather in his back,
He ruled the others with a quack, quack, quack,
quack, quack, quack.
He ruled the others with a quack, quack, quack,
quack, quack, quack.
 
 
2.
Down to the river they would go,
Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble to and fro,
 
    Refrain:  
    But the one little duck with the feather in his back,
He ruled the others with a quack, quack, quack,
quack, quack, quack.
He ruled the others with a quack, quack, quack,
quack, quack, quack.
