Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed (hold up 5 fingers and bounce them)

One fell off and bumped his head (touch head)

Mama called the doctor (pretend phone to ear)

And the doctor said “No more monkeys jumping on the bed” (shake finger)

(count down)

Funky Spunky Monkey (Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

The funky spunky monkey climbed up the coconut tree (climbing motion)

Down came the coconut and bonked him on his knee (wave hand down and slap knee)

Along came his mama and kissed away his pain (blow a kiss)

So the funky spunky monkey climbed up the tree again (climbing motion)

Five Elephants in the Bathtub

One elephant in the bathtub

Going for a swim (swimming motion).

Knock, knock (clap twice)

Splash, splash (slap knees twice)

Come on in (motion come in)

(count up)

Five elephants in the bathtub

Going for a swim

Knock, knock

Splash, splash

They all fall in (raise arms)

I Went to the Jungle One Day (Tune: London Bridge)

This is a great song to use puppets with, the kids get really excited when you pull out a puppet.

I went to the jungle one day,

Jungle one day, jungle one day

I saw a lion on the way

And this is what he said… ROAR

(repeat with other animals)
