The Monkeys and the Crocodile

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! "

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? "

Four little monkeys
Sitting in a 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! "
