Lyrics

One little, two little, three little Indians
Four little, five little, six little Indians
Seven little, eight little, nine little Indians
Ten little Indian boys.

Ten little, nine little, eight little Indians
Seven little, six little, five little Indians
Four little, three little, two little Indians
One little Indian boy.

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About 10 Little Indians

The original song "10 Little Indians" was composed by Septimus Winner in 1868, written specifically for a minstrel show and was much more elaborate than the song that we now know and was known then as "Ten Little Injuns".

This is a children's rhyming song that can be sung to the tune of "Michael Finnegan". It is a repetitive song which makes it easy to sing and helps with counting backwards.

There are many versions of this song that have been used in shows and books previously and the song has been quoted in many novels, like Agatha Christies, And Then There Were None.

They jumped in the boat and the boat tipped over
They jumped in the boat and the boat tipped over

They swam and they swam and they swam to the shore
They swam and they swam and they swam to the shore
They swam and they swam and they swam to the shore
Ten little Indians boys and girls.

They ran and they ran and they ran to their mothers
They ran and they ran and they ran to their mothers
They ran and they ran and they ran to their mothers
Ten little Indians boys and girls.

They slept and they slept and they slept til the morning
They slept and they slept and they slept til the morning
They slept and they slept and they slept til the morning
