Five Baby Emus

Five baby emus, wishing they could soar. (hold up five fingers)
One went to try and that left four. (one finger down)
Four baby emus, hungry as can be.
One went to eat and that left three.
Three baby emus go off to the zoo.
One ran away, and that left two.
Two baby emus were looking for some fun.
One found a playmate and that left one.
One baby emu, playing in the sun.
Then all were gone, and that left none.
