One chord of this  has been slightly modified. This is posted to make it easy for me to print if needed. They all work perfectly, but the one chord change makes playing the song slightly more logical.

FIVE LITTLE OWLS
Rhyme by Anonymous
Tune by ELEG for SBWE

Five little owls in an old elm tree
Fluffy and puffy as owls could be,
Blinking and winking with big round eyes
At the big round moon that hung in the skies.

As I passed beneath, I could hear one say,
“There’ll be mouse for supper, there will today.”
Then all of them hooted “Tu-whit, Tu-whoo!
Yes, mouse for supper, Hoo hoo, hoooo!”

I was looking through Eric Carle’s deeply enjoyable book Eric Carle’s Animals Animals.  It’s a book filled with Eric Carle’s pictures for poems about animals:

About halfway through the book was FIVE LITTLE OWLS, a rhyme I’d never seen before.  His illustration is, as you would expect, marvelous, and I went looking for a tune.  No tune.  So I wrote one myself.

Sing Along with Emily’s tune for FIVE LITTLE OWLS:
