    Music: “Five Spring Flowers”

    Five spring flowers, all in a row.
    The first one said, “We need rain to grow!”
    The second one said, “Oh, my, we need water!”
    The third one said, “Yes, it’s getting hotter!”
    The fourth one said, “I see clouds in the sky.”
    The fifth one said, “I wonder why?”
    Then boom went the thunder
    And zap went the lightning!
    That springtime storm was really frightening!
    But the flowers weren’t worried — oh, no, no, no!
    The rain helped them to grow, grow, grow!
