Narrator 1:  Once upon a time there was a little old woman and a little old man and they lived 
             in a little old house.
 
Narrator 2:  They didn't have any children. Nope, not even one!!

Narrator 3:  One day the little old woman decided to make a boy out of gingerbread.

Old Woman:   I'm going to make a little gingerbread boy. I'm rolling out the dough, and putting
             him on a pan to bake. Into the oven you go!

Old Man:     I love gingerbread. Yum! Yum!

(The microwave beeps.)

Old Woman:   Oh, the Little Gingerbread Boy is done.

Narrator 1:  Out jumped the Little Gingerbread Boy.

Narrator 2:  Out of the door and down the street he ran.

Narrator 3:  The Little Old Woman and the Little Old Man ran after him.

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

Narrator 1:  The little Gingerbread Boy ran on and on until he saw a cow.

Cow:         Stop little Gingerbread Boy I want to eat you!

Gingerbread Boy: I've run away from a little old woman and a little old man and I can away from
             you, too, I can! Run, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me I'm the 
             Gingerbread Man!

Narrator 2:  And the cow couldn't catch him.

Narrator 3:  The little Gingerbread Boy ran on and on until he saw a horse.

Horse:       You look good enough to eat.

Gingerbread Boy: I've run away from a little old woman, a little old man, and a cow, and I can 
             run away from you, too, I can! Run, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me 
             I'm the Gingerbread Man!

Narrator 1:  And the horse couldn't catch him.

Narrator 2:  The Little Gingerbread Boy ran on and on until he saw a fox.

Narrator 3:  By this time, the Little Gingerbread Boy was sure that nobody could catch him.

Gingerbread Boy: I've run away from a little old woman, a little old man, and a cow, and a
             horse, and I can run away from you, too, I can! Run, run, as fast as you can! You 
             can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!

Fox:         Why I would not catch you if I could. I would not catch you if I could. I would 
             not even think of it.

Gingerbread Boy: Oh no a river!

Fox:         Jump on my tail and I will take you across.

Narrator 1:  The Gingerbread boy jumped on the fox's tail.

Narrator 2:  The fox swam into the river.

Fox:         Little Gingerbread boy you better get on my back or you'll get wet.

Narrator 3:  The fox swam deeper.

Fox:         My back is tired. Little Gingerbread boy you better get on my nose.

Narrator 1:  As soon as the fox reached the shore, the fox threw back his head and gobbled 
             him up!

Everybody:   And that was the end of the gingerbread boy!
