Lots of Baby Ducklings


Lots of baby ducklings
     Tapping on their eggs:
Out came some little heads
     Followed by some legs.

Lots of baby ducklings
     Looked at the world outside:
'It’s much too big for us,' they said,
     And off they ran to hide.

Lots of baby ducklings
     Soon came back again:
And when you saw them on the lake,
     Well it was very plain -

That they’d decided that the world
     Was just the place to be,
And sunflower seeds we threw for them
      They gobbled for their tea.

Bread isn't good for ducks.  It's like junk food.  Buy them some sunflower seeds which is just as cheap but healthy eating.
