Autumn Leaves Stretch
(To the tune of London Bridges)
Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down, it is fall.

Take a rake and rake them up, rake them up, rake them up.
Take a rake and rake them up, it is fall.

Make a pile and jump right in, jump right in, jump right in.
Make a pile and jump right in, it is fall.
