Sounds like a monkey

Sounds like a monkey 

 

My Daddy’s ukulele
sounds like a monkey
a big fat monkey
orang-utan orang-utan!

My Daddy’s ukulele
sounds like a monkey
a monkey in a blue truck
a blue truck a blue truck!

a blue truck a blue truck
a blue truck a blue truck
a dump truck a dump truck
a dump truck a dump truck!

a little truck a longer truck
a longer truck a longer truck
a little truck a longer truck
a longer truck a longer truck!

orang-utan orang-utan
orang-utan orang-utan
sounds like a monkey
in a blue dump truck!

orang-utan orang-utan
a blue dump truck!
