    Chorus:

                    C                                 Dm

    Have you heard about the littlest monkey

              F                   G

    In the jungle by the sea?

                  C                        Dm

    Well, he wants to be an astronaut

            F                        G

    fly above his favorite tree

     

            Am (2)

    Sometimes he has trouble even peeling a banana

          C (2)

    he wants to build a rocket ship

          Dm (2)

    His parents say, "Oh, monkey!" but he says, "I'll do it!

          F                                   G

    I'll take it on my own space trip."

     

    Chorus

     

            Am (2)

    Sometimes he has trouble even peeling a banana

                 C (2)

    but he built his own rocket ship

          Dm (2)

    He blasted off high above his favorite tree

            F                                  G

    And he began his own moon trip

     

    Bridge:

                  C                        Dm

    He got moon rocks for his family

                 F                                    G

    and he brought 'em back for everyone to see

                  C                        Dm

    He got moon rocks for his family

                 F                                    G

    and he brought 'em back for everyone to see

     

    Chorus 2:

                    C                                 Dm

    Have you heard about the littlest monkey

                F                   G

    In the jungle by the sea?

                  C                        Dm

    Well, he turned into an astronaut

            F                           G

    flew above his favorite tree
