Once upon a time, there were a little old woman and a little old man who lived in a little cottage near the river . The little old woman and the little old man were hungry, so the little old woman decided to bake a gingerbread man!
When the gingerbread man was done, the little old woman opened the oven door, but before she could take him out, the gingerbread man jumped up and ran through the kitchen and out of the cottage shouting:
"Don't eat me!"
The gingerbread man ran into the garden and passed the little old man . "Stop," the little old man called out, "I want to eat you." But the gingerbread man ran even faster, chanting, "I've run away from a little old woman , and I can run away from you, I can."
Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man .
