Five Little Monkeys – Guitar Chords, Tabs, Sheet Music for Guitar, Printable PDF

“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.

In the same category belong “Finger Family”, “Five Little Ducks” and “Bingo Song” too.

Guitar Chords and Tabs in A

Five Little Monkeys’ is an extremely easy 2-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of A major, as both A and E chords are essential for beginners.

Besides that, the melody range that results when singing in the key of A is an octave from A4 to A5 (see on the Music Sheet following).  This range is well suited to most children’s voice pitch. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to Bb, B, C, or C# major by placing it respectively to fret I, II, III, or IV.
