Learn how to sing the classic kid's song 5 Little Monkeys with this Howcast video.

Jamie: 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed. Hi friends, I’m Jamie.

Kelly: I’m Kelly.

Jamie: We’re going to be doing 5 Little Monkeys. I’m sure you’ve heard this song before. We’re going to have our 5 monkeys out, just like this, they’re going to go jumping on the bed, one’s going to fall out and bump his head. We’re all going to say, "Ouch." That hurt, right? The mama calls the doctor and the doctor says, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed." Can we do that with music, Kelly?

Kelly: Sure.

Jamie: All right. Let’s get our 5 fingers out; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Ready?
