Five Little Monkeys – How to Play on the Glockenspiel / Xylophone

“Five Little Monkeys” is a “repetitive” nursery rhyme, that means the text stays same for every turn, with only a small part of a verse changing every time. The song is about five playful monkeys who pretend they are going to bed, but they act silly instead and jump on the bed. One by one they fall from the bed and get hurt, but a funny twist in the plot comes in the end!
