From This Might Be A Wiki
One Dozen Monkeys
By: They Might Be Giants
Year: 2008

I am a girl. I'm 11 years old That's one more than 10 And one less than 12 (One dozen) At noon (12 o'clock) I was eating a cupcake from a baker's dozen (Of cupcakes) That's 13 cupcakes And the postman rang the doorbell to deliver a package It was a barrel that came from the jungle

One dozen monkeys jumped right out of the monkey barrel 12 crazy monkeys ran right out of the monkey barrel 11 monkeys ran up into the tree One monkey stayed behind and now that monkey rides a bike around with me

Mom was upset with the monkeys in the tree And the monkey on a bike Which I named Larry With a dozen bananas she got the monkeys in the barrel And gave it to the postman to send back to the jungle

But then the monkeys jumped back out of the monkey barrel 12 crazy monkeys ran right out of the monkey barrel 11 monkeys ran back into the tree One monkey stayed behind and now that monkey rides a bike around with me

His name is Larry
