Five Little Monkeys - Lyrics

Five little monkeys
Swinging from a tree
Teasing Uncle Crocodile
Merry as can be
Swinging high, swinging low
Swinging left and right
"Dear Uncle Crocodile
Come and take a bite"
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Five little monkeys
Swinging in the air
Heads up. tails up
Little do they care
Swinging up, swinging down
Swinging far and near
"Poor Uncle Crocodile
Aren't you hungry, dear"
Oh-oh, oh-oh

Na, na, na, na, na, na
You can't catch me
Na, na, na, na, na, na
You can't catch me
Na, na, na, na, na, na
You can't catch me
Ha, ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee

Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Humm, num, yum, num

Four little monkeys
Sitting in the tree
Heads down, tails down
Dreary as can be
Weeping loud, weeping low
Crying to each other
'Wicked Uncle Crocodile
To gobble up our brother"

You caught our brother
But you can't catch me
You caught our brother
But you can't catch me
You caught our brother
But you can't catch me
Ha, ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee

Na, na, na, na, na, na
You can't catch me
Na, na, na, na, na, na
You can't catch me
Na, na, na, na, na, na
You can't catch me
Ha, ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee

Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Almost, almost got ya, almost

Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Gonna get ya, gonna get ya, get ya, get ya
Almost, aaaaw

Based on a poem by Laura E. Richards
