Autumn Leaves Are Falling Down
Traditional Music - Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip 
Shari and Jerry Tallon


This song is available on Shari and Jerry's Songs For Every Season.


This action song will give you and your students another fun way to enjoy and learn about Autumn. Ask the students to pretend to put on the autumn outdoor clothes and stand up.

Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down
Autumn leaves are falling down, down down on the ground.

Students are standing, and holding their arms up high with
Their fingers wiggling like the leaves falling down. Begin to
Crouch down until they are as low as possible.


Rake them up and make a pile, make a pile, make a pile.
Rake them up and make a pile, guaranteed to make you smile.

Students stand up and pretend to rake the leaves. They
Stop raking and sing” guaranteed to make you smile”
While holding their fingers to their lips in a smiling grimace.


Jump into the pile of leaves, pile of leaves, pile of leaves
Jump into the pile of leaves, taking turns if you please.

Students jump up and down. They stop jumping and sing
“taking turns if you please” nice and strong.

Put a leaf in a book, in a book, in a book
Put a leaf in a book, in a few months take a look.

Students bend down, pretend to pick up a leaf and clap
Hands together as if closing the leaf in a book. Everyone
Sings “in a few months, take a look”.

Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down
Autumn leaves are falling down, down down on the ground.

Students are standing, and holding their arms up high with
Their fingers wiggling like the leaves falling down. Begin to
Crouch down until they are as low as possible.

 

This song fades at the end. If you are doing it in a concert, you could use the fade to exit the stage. If you are in the classroom, you could have all the students follow the leader around your circle until the song ends.
