Movements !

Three little monkeys swinging in a tree
Along came a crocodile as quiet as can be
The first monkey said, "You can't catch me !"

SNAP !

Two little monkeys swinging in a tree
Along came a crocodile as quiet as can be
The second monkey said, "You can't catch me !"

SNAP !

One little monkeys swinging in a tree
Along came a crocodile as quiet as can be
The last monkey said, "You can't catch me !"

SNAP ! - Missed me !

Movements

Hold your hand in the air with three fingers dangling down to imitate the three monkeys in a tree.
Your other hand is the crocodile.
As you sing you wave your monkeys/fingers in the air and make the crocodile hand creep slowly toward the monkeys.
When you say 'SNAP' pull one finger back into your fist and make the crocodile hand eat it.
On the last verse the monkey escapes. You stick one finger in the air as the triumphant monkey and your crocodile/hand hides in shame in your lap.
