100 Animals

I went to the zoo, and what did I see?
100 animals, looking at me.
There were:
10 tall giraffes, eating from the trees.
10 silly monkeys, scratching on their knees.
10 sleeping snakes, lying in the sun.
10 munching elephants, eating peanuts one by one.
10 leaping tigers, performing in the shows,
10 pink flamingos, standing on their toes.
10 grouchy bears, trying to get some sleep.
10 happy hippos, in the water deep.
10 roaring lions, walking two by two.
10 galloping zebras, all living in the zoo

Swing, Swing

(stand in a circle, hold hands/swing arms)

Little monkeys swinging in the tree,
All hold hands and swing with me.
Swing up high and swing down low,
Swing in the tree, now don’t let go!
Swing, swing, like I do.
Swing like monkeys in the zoo.

Itsy Bitsy Monkey

(Sung to: “Itsy Bitsy Spider”)
The itsy bitsy monkey
climbed up the coconut tree.
Down came a coconut
and hit him on his knee -OWWWWW.
Out came a lion
with a beautiful mane – ANNNNND
The itsy bitsy monkey
climbed up the tree again.

Leo the Lion

Leo the lion is the king of the jungle
And his jaws are big and wide. (ROAR!)
Leo the lion gives a roar as a warning
That you better run away and hide.(ROAR!)
