The Gingerbread Man

      The Gingerbread Man ran and ran, laughing and singing. While he ran, he met a chicken.

      Chicken"Cackle, cackle!" said the chicken. "You look fine enough to peck for dinner. I'm going to eat you, Mr. Gingerbread Man!"

    But the Gingerbread Man just laughed.

      "I ran away from an old woman. I ran away from an old man. I ran away from a cow. I ran away from a horse, and I can run away from you! I can!"

      And so he ran singing,

      Gingerbread Man"Run, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me! I'm the Gingerbread Man!"

      The chicken ran after the Gingerbread Man, but she could not catch him.
