Rhyme: “All The Monkeys In The Zoo
All the monkeys in the zoo touch their toes, touch their toes, touch their toes. All the monkeys in the zoo touch their toes, Just like I do!
All the monkeys in the zoo tickle their tummies, tickle their tummies, tickle their tummies. All the monkeys in the zoo tickle their tummies, Just like I do!
All the monkeys in the zoo jump up and down, Jump up and down, Jump up and down. All the monkeys in the zoo jump up and down, Just like I do!”
