GUEST,Carol Lyr Req: what became of the monk? (Animal Fair) (69* d) RE: Lyr Req: what became of the monk? (Animal Fair) 15 Feb 08

Oh My Goodness!

I've taught this song to my godchildren (now 8 and 7).

I remember from my parents as:

I went to the animal fair
The birds and the bees were there
The great baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his golden hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk (boom)
And slid down the elephant's trunk (wheeee)
The elephant sneezed (achoo) and fell on his knees,
And what became of the monkey monkey monkey monkey...

They still love it and have to sit on my lap facing me so they can fall through my knees with the "monkey fell out of his bunk" - but it's a bit of a struggle now as my godson is so heavy!

Still it brings back such wonderful memories.

Thank you for making my day
