Lyrics

Five currant buns in a baker's shop.
Big and round with a cherry on the top,
Along came a boy with a penny one day,
Bought a currant bun and took it away.

Four currant buns in a baker's shop.
Big and round with a cherry on the top,
Along came a boy with a penny one day,
Bought a currant bun and took it away.

Three currant buns in a baker's shop.
Big and round with a cherry on the top,
Along came a boy with a penny one day,
Bought a currant bun and took it away.

Two currant buns in a baker's shop.
Big and round with a cherry on the top,
Along came a boy with a penny one day,
Bought a currant bun and took it away.

One currant bun in a baker's shop.
Big and round with a cherry on the top,
Along came a boy with a penny one day,
Bought the currant bun and took it away.

Information About Five Currant Buns

Historically, a currant bun is a type of sweet bread or bun. Not to be confused with a scone and originally from the United Kingdom.

The children's song is also a very popular nursery rhyme. It came about as a Virginia folk song that has been used in popular society in the classroom and on the playground.

This song can be used as a tool to help children learn to count, learn addition and subtraction, and understand how currency is used as well.

The words to the song go from having five buns to one bun. This is a tool that is teaching children how to take the five of something that they have and turn it into only one. This is a great way for teaching subtraction.

With the exchange of pennies in the song, children are learning how to use currency and this will be a great lesson segue into doing so.

A visual tool that teachers can use to teach this song is to line up five children and have them sing the words and then as the numbers dwindle, the children will step out of the circle that they have made. Visually, this will help children to see the differences between five and one child.
