Five Little Monkeys Lyrics and Actions

♫ Five little monkeys [Hold up five fingers.]
jumping on the bed. [Jump up and down.]
One fell off [Hold up one finger and then roll your hand down towards the floor.]
and bumped his head. [Tap your head with your fist.]
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, [Put your pinky to your mouth and thumb to your ear like a telephone.]
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!” [Put one hand on your hip and wag your index finger.]
Four little monkeys [Hold up four fingers.]
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!”
Three little monkeys [Hold up three fingers.]
jumping on the bed.
One fell off
and bumped her head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”
Two little monkeys [Hold up two fingers.]
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!”
One little monkey [Hold up one finger.]
jumping on the bed.
She fell off
and bumped her head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!” ♫

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This original song based on a classic nursery chant has been used by parents for generations to teach a valuable lesson…little monkeys should never jump on the bed! (Nor should little children!) And all monkeys should listen to their mama and their doctor because doctor knows best and so does mama!
