The 1st little groundhog crept out of his lair,                             (creeping fingers)

The second little groundhog said, “Is spring in the air?”            (sniff air)
The third little groundhog asked, “Is the time right?”                (point to “watch” on wrist)
The fourth little groundhog squirmed, “The sun is too bright!” (shade eyes)
The fifth little groundhog squeaked, “My shadow I see!”
“I’m not staying out here! No siree! Not ME!                               (shake head no)
“Back to my burrow I’m going to creep.”                                    (creep fingers)
“And for six more weeks I’m going to sleep!”                             (rest head on hands and close eyes)

A shy little groundhog left his bed, 

He wiggled his nose and shook his head. 

He looked to the left, he looked to the right. 

The day was clear, and the sun was bright. 

He saw his shadow, and he ran in fright. 

Then back to his burrow, he crept, crept, crept. 

And six more weeks he slept, slept, slept. 

                --variation of poem by Marguerite Gade


Little Groundhog down below

Underneath the wintery snow.

Come on out and tell us true,

Is Spring coming?

Is Winter through? 


I have a little shadow 

that goes in and out with me. 

And what can be the use of him, 

Is more than I can see.        

He is very, very like me 

From heels up to the head; 

And I see him jump before me, 

When I jump into my bed.

--R.L. Stevenson 


If I walk, my shadow walks. 

If I run, my shadow runs. 

And when I stand still, as you can see, 

My shadow stands beside me. 

When I hop, my shadow hops. 

When I jump, my shadow jumps. 

And when I sit still, as you can see, 

My shadow sits beside of me.


Here is the burrow,

With snow on the ground.

Out pops Mr. Groundhog,

To have a look around.


Mr. Groundhog, Mr. Groundhog.

Are you there? Are you there?

Will you see your shadow?

We all want to know

On this day,

Groundhog Day.

Mr. Groundhog, Mr. Groundhog,

Take a peek, take a peek.

If you see your shadow,

There will be more winter,

Six more weeks,

Six more weeks.
