Rhyme
Five little monkeys swinging in the tree
Teasing Mr. Crocodile, “You can’t catch me, No you can’t catch me”
Along comes Mr. Crocodile, as quiet as can be
And SNAPPED that monkey out of the tree!
Repeat with:
Four little monkeys…
Three little monkeys…
Two little monkeys…
One little monkey…

Song
Walking through the jungle, what did I see? [beat drum]
A big lion roaring at me me me!
Walking through the jungle, what did I see?
A baby monkey laughing at me me me!
Walking through the jungle, what did I see?
A slippery snake hissing at me me me!
Walking through the jungle, what did I see?
A crocodile crunching at me me me!
Walking through the jungle, what did I see?
An elephant stomping at me me me!
