Read myself

Gingerbread Man

Run, run, run as fast as you can.

You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.

I ran from the baker and his wife too.

You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

A gingerbread man wearing red pants runs quickly with his arms waving above his head

The baker made a boy one day

Who leapt from the oven ready to play.

He and his wife were ready to eat

The gingerbread man who had run down the street.

Run, run, run as fast as you can,

You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.

I ran from the baker and his wife too.

You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

A chef holding a tray and a woman look shocked as the Gingerbread Man runs off the table.

Then came a pig and cow and hare

Who joined in the chase around the square.

They were all hungry and ready to eat,

But that gingerbread man was too quick on his feet.

Run, run, run as fast as you can,

You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man

I ran from the baker and his wife too.

You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

The chef, wife, cow, rabbit and pig chasing the Gingerbread man.

He came to a pond that blocked his path

And gingerbread men don’t like to bath.

Out jumped a fox who said, “Hop on,

I will take you safely across the pond.”

Run, run, run as fast as you can.

You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.

I ran from the baker and his wife too.

You’ll never catch me, not any of you.

A large orange fox looking down at the Gingerbread Man

He climbed up onto the fox’s back,

Who licked his lips and wanted to snack.

He climbed onto the fox’s head,

Who loved the taste of gingerbread.

Run, run, run as fast as you can.

You’ll never catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.

He trusted the fox to help his plan,

And that was the end of the gingerbread man.

The fox flipping he Gingerbread man into his open mouth
