Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you, how are you,
Hello everybody and how are you?
How are you today?
Come on everybody and clap your
hands….

Who’s that, tapping at my window,
Who’s that, knocking at my door?
Abby, knocking at my window,
Michael, knocking at my door.

Come along and play with me
Underneath the monkey tree
Monkey see and monkey do
Just like monkeys in the zoo
Swing your tail, one, two, three,
Underneath the monkey tree
Monkey see and monkey do
Just like monkeys in the zoo
Clap your hands, one, two, three,
Underneath the monkey tree
Monkey see and monkey do
Just like monkeys in the zoo
Sit down on the ground with me
Underneath the monkey tree
Monkey see and monkey do
Just like monkeys in the zoo
Five little monkeys jumping on the bed

One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys, jumping on the bed!”
Five little animals jumping on the bed
The monkey fell off and bumped his head
Papa called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys, jumping on the bed!”

Little red monkey, monkey, monkey
Little red monkey, how do you do?
Where is your mother, father,
Sister, brother, rest of the family,
Little red monkey, how do you do?

I’m gonna shake, shake, shake my sillies out,
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out,
Shake, shake, shake my sillies out,
Wiggle my waggles all away
Stretch, yawn, jump, clap

Pygmy
When we think of monkeys, we think of those long-armed wild guys swinging through the trees. But this guy can’t do that so easily. The pygmy marmoset is only about 5 inches long and weighs less than half a pound! As you see in the photo, he’s not going to swing from tree to tree very well. It’s the smallest type of monkey in the world. Meanwhile, his far-off cousin, the mandrill, is the biggest type of monkey, weighing in at about 75 pounds. That might be bigger than you are…and definitely too big to wrap around your finger.

 
If you have a teeny marmoset hanging on each finger of your right hand, how many monkeys are you holding?

how many monkeys are you holding?

Motor boat, motor boat
Motor boat, motor boat
Go so slow
Motor boat, motor boat
Go so slow
Motor boat, motor boat
Go a little faster
Motor boat, motor boat
The waves are getting worse
Motor boat, motor boat
Put it in reverse!
We’re floating down the river
We’re floating down below
We’re floating down the river
On the O-hi-o
Jump all around,
Jumping Josie,
Jump all around
Jumping Josie
Jump all around,
Jumping Josie
Jumping all day long!

Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
Go round and round the circle
As we have done before
Go up and down the circle
Go up and down the circle
Go up and down the circle
As we have done before
Go in and out the circle
Go in and out the circle
Go in and out the circle
As we have done before

All around the cobbler’s bench
The monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought it was all in fun
Pop! goes the weasel
A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle
That’s the way the money goes
Pop! goes the weasel
Half a pound of tuppenny rice
Half a pound of treacle
Mix it up and make it nice
Pop! goes the weasel
  [Chorus]
Up and down the London road,
In and out the Eagle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! Goes the weasel.
  [Chorus]
I've no time to plead and pine,
I've no time to wheedle,
Kiss me quick and then I'm gone
Pop! Goes the weasel.



If you're happy and you know it,
 clap your hands
If you're happy and you know it,
clap your hands
If you're happy and you know it,
and you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it,
clap your hands
Stomp your feet
Stretch up high
Turn around
SHOUT HOORAY!

Once upon a time there was a stick
No, not a stick but a leaf
No, not a leaf but a frog
No, not a frog but a duck
On the sixth of June
It rained like mad
And the triangle ruler
Got a crack
The balloons flew up
And all around
Now let’s go and see
The monkey!

Come up horsey, hey hey (4x)
Mama's gonna buy you a little lapdog
Mama's gonna buy you a little lapdog
Mama's gonna buy you a little lapdog
Put him in your lap when she goes off …
Mama’s gonna buy you a little blue bird (3x)
Gonna sing [whistle] when she goes off …
Mama’s gonna make you an apple pie (3x)
Hush little baby, don't you cry …

Mighty pretty motion
Toodala
Toodala, Toodala
Mighty pretty motion,
Toodala,
Toodala la lady.
Rock old Soney,
Toodala . . .
Clap your hands . . .
Stamp your feet . . .
Goodbye, story time!
