Second one said there are witches in the air (thumb and pointer make witsh on broom fly upward)
the 3rd one said "but we don't care (add third finger wag back and forth on "don't care)
The 4th one said let's run, and run, and run (add fourth finger up and down with melody)
The 5th one said "I'm ready for some fun (add fifth finger up go up with melody)
OO-Oo went the wind (both hands to group then up high with tune and both hands wave on wind)
And out went the light (clap on 'out' )
And the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight (roll hands over each other going to the ground)
