Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only four little ducks came back.

Four little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only three little ducks came back.

Three little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only two little ducks came back.

Two little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only one little duck came back.

One little duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But none of the five little ducks came back.

Sad mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack.”
And all of the five little ducks came back.

Summary:

The rhyme is about the five little ducks who went out on a day with all of their siblings. All of them went to the hill which was far away from their home. When the mother duck called out her babies, only four came back. The next day, four little ducks went out on the hill, but this time, only three came back.

Likewise, one by one, the ducks began to be missing. Soon, the day came when no ducks came back to the home. Sad mother went up to the hill to check what was wrong there. When she reached there and called out for her babies with ‘quack, quack’, all the ducks came back and hugged her mother. All of them went home together singing ‘quack, quack, quack!’
