Five Little Monkeys is a beautiful pre-school song that toddlers consider fun. This could be because it activates the natural instincts in children to jump and sometimes bump their heads.
There ought to be a warning before kids listen to this nursery rhyme because it has the potential of causing them to misbehave during bedtime.
It was beautiful fun day with the monkey family. When it was bedtime, mama monkey tucked her five little monkeys jumping on the bed, kissed them all good night and shut the door. Little did mama monkey realize that her five little monkeys had their own plans for the night.
As soon as the door closed behind them, they all sprang up and began to jump on the bed. They jumped so high and hard that one fell off and bumped his head. “Oh no!” they cried out. Mama monkey hurried into the room to see what the problem was. She went over to the phone and called the doctor. The doctor told her what to do and warned; “no more monkeys jumping on the bed”.
She tucked the remaining four monkeys on the bed, kissed them all good night in hope that they have learned their lessons.
Barely had the door closed when all four monkeys began jumping on the bed again. This time, they jumped higher and harder until a second monkey fell off and bumped his head. “Not again” mama monkey cried out when she came into the room. She went to the phone, called the doctor again to report the situation and the doctor gave her the same instruction; “no more monkeys jumping on the bed”.
The monkeys went on and on until all five had their heads bumped and taken to the hospital. This time, they learned a hard lesson never to jump on the bed again.
