Five Little Monkeys

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!”

Four 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!”

“Put those monkeys to bed!”

One Two Buckle My Shoe

One, two, buckle my shoe.
Three, four, open the door.
Five, six, pick up sticks.
Seven, eight, lay them straight.
Nine, ten, do it again.

One, two, buckle my shoe.
Three, four, open the door.
Five, six, pick up sticks.
Seven, eight, lay them straight.
Nine, ten, a big fat hen!


Ten Green Bottles

Ten green bottles hanging on the wall,
Ten green bottles hanging on the wall,
And if one green bottle should accidentally fall,
There’ll be nine green bottles hanging on the wall.

Repeat the verse above, counting down from 9, 8,7,6,5,4,3, and 2. Finally, end with 

One green bottle hanging on a wall
One green bottle hanging on a wall
And if one green bottle should accidentally fall (dramatic pause)
They’ll be no green bottles hanging on a wall.


This Old Man

This old man, he played one,
He played knick-knack on my thumb;
With a knick-knack paddy whack
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played two,
He played knick-knack on my shoe;
With a knick-knack paddy whack
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played three,
He played knick-knack on my knee;
With a knick-knack paddy whack
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played four,
He played knick-knack on the floor;
With a knick-knack paddy whack
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.
