Greg: What are you doing, Jeff?

Jeff: I dreamed I was a monkey.

Greg: A monkey?!?

(Jeff makes a monkey sound.)

Greg: Here's some of our favorite animals. Let's move like them. Here we go.

We're gonna do the monkey. (Ooh-ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ooh-ah-ah!)

Do the monkey, (Ooh-ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ooh-ah-ah!)

Monkey, monkey, (Ooh-ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ooh-ah-ah!)

That's alright.

Do the elephant, (Brrrrrr!)

Do the elephant, (Brrrrrr!)

Do the elephant, (Brrrrrr!)

That's alright.

We're gonna jump to the front and back. (Go monster)

Jump to the front and back (go monster)

Jump to the front and back. 

That's alright.

Now do the tiger, (Rawwwr!)

Tiger, tiger, (Rawwwr!)

We're gonna jump to the front and back. (Go monkey)
