Lyrics

Five little men in their flying saucers
flew around the world one day.
They looked left and right
but they didn't like the sight
so one of them flew away!

Four little men in their flying saucers
flew around the world one day.
They looked left and right
but they didn't like the sight
so one of them flew away!

Three little men in their flying saucers
flew around the world one day.
They looked left and right
but they didn't like the sight
so one of them flew away!

Two little men in their flying saucers
flew around the world one day.
They looked left and right
but they didn't like the sight
so one of them flew away!

One little man in his flying saucer
flew around the world one day.
He looked left and right
but he didn't like the sight
so he just flew away!
