Song Lyrics:

Three blue pigeons, three blue pigeons, three blue pigeons
Sitting on a fence.

Oh look! One has flown away!

Two blue pigeons, two blue pigeons, two blue pigeons
Sitting on a fence.

Oh look! another one has flown away!

One blue pigeon, one blue pigeon, one blue pigeon
Sitting on a fence.

Oh look! It has flown away too!

No blue pigeons, no blue pigeons, no blue pigeons
Sitting on a fence.

Oh look! One has returned! Let us rejoice!

One blue pigeon,one blue pigeon, one blue pigeon
Sitting on a fence.

Oh look! Another has returned! Let us rejoice!

Two blue pigeons, two blue pigeons, two blue pigeons
Sitting on a fence.

Oh look! The last has returned! Let us rejoice!

Three blue pigeons, three blue pigeons, three blue pigeons,
Sitting on a fence!

 

 

Actions:

Show three upright fingers to indicate the pigeons.
Place the index finger from the other hand to form the fence.

As one “flies away”, wiggle your index finger of your bird hand while moving it away from you, as though the pigeon was flying off into the distance.

Our voice becomes sadder and sadder as each pigeon leaves us.

When there are no more pigeons left, we cover our face with our hands and pretend to cry.

 

 

 

But, joy of joys! Our pigeons begin to fly back home. Indicate this by showing your index finger far away and then move it towards you, and placing it back on the fence rail.

Our voice and body movements
become more and more excited as our pigeons return.

This is a very simple song, but I have never met a child between the ages of 3 and 8 who didn’t love it!
                 -- Denise Gagné Williamson
