Monkey, monkey, in the tree.
Can you jump around like me?

monkey see look at me

Rhyme: Five little monkeys jumping on the bed

Song: (tune: “The Wheels on the Bus”)

The monkeys in the zoo turn round and round,
Round and round,
Round and round.
The monkeys in the zoo turn round and round,
Just like I do.

The monkeys in the zoo all touch their toes…
The monkeys in the zoo all rub their tummies…
The monkeys in the zoo all pat their heads…
The monkeys in the zoo jump up and down…
