If You Want to be a Zoo Animal

(Tune: If You’re Happy And You Know It)

If you want to be a monkey, jump up high!

If you want to be a monkey, jump up high!

If you want to be a monkey,

if you want to be a monkey,

If you want to be a monkey, jump up high!

 

Parrot — flap your wings

Elephant — swing your trunk

Lion — roar out loud

Giraffe — stand up tall

 

Here Comes the Elephant

Here comes the elephant,

He moves so slow.

He swings his long trunk,

To and fro.

He is SO big,

He can’t even jump.

He sits down with a

GREAT BIG THUMP!

 

Mister Rattlesnake

(Use shakers to accompany this rhyme)

I wish that I could rattle and shake,

Just like Mister Rattlesnake.

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,

And shake, shake, shake

Just like Mister Rattlesnake!
