Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb

My brother, thinking he was being a smarty pants reminded me that this was one of my favorite stories growing up I knew this by heart when I was younger.


Hand Hand Fingers Thumb

One thumb One thumb Drumming on a drum.

One hand Two hands Drumming on a drum.

Dum ditty Dum ditty Dum dum dum.

Rings on fingers.

Rings on thumb. Drum drum Drum drum Drum drum drum.

Monkeys drum…

…and monkeys hum. Hum drum Hum drum Hum drum hum.

Hand picks an apple.

Hand picks a plum. Dum ditty Dum ditty Dum dum dum.

Monkeys come And monkeys go.

Hands with handkerchiefs. Blow! Blow! Blow!

“Hello Jack.” “Hello Jake.”

Shake hands Shake hands Shake! Shake! Shake!

“Bye-bye Jake.”

“Bye-bye Jack.” Dum ditty Dum ditty Whack! Whack! Whack!

Hands play banjos Strum strum strum.

Hands play fiddles Zum zum zum.

Dum ditty Dum ditty Dum dum dum,

Hand in hand More monkeys come.

Many more fingers. Many more thumb. Many more monkeys. Many more drums.

Millions of fingers! Millions of thumbs! Millions of monkeys Drumming on drums!

Dum ditty Dum ditty Dum dum dum.
