Five little monkeys song lyrics

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!"

Three little monkeys jumping on the bed, One fell down and bumped her head, Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Two little monkeys jumping on the bed, One fell down and bumped his head, Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

One little monkey jumping on the bed, She fell down and bumped her head, Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

No little monkeys jumping on the bed, None fell off and bumped their head.
Mama called the doctor, and the doctor said, "Put those monkeys back into bed!"
