Song: Snow Monkeys
Sung to the tune of "Yankee Doodle"
Step 1
"Snow Monkeys"

When it’s winter in Japan,
Snow monkeys get chilly.
So they take a nice, hot bath.
Oh, don’t they look so silly?


Snow is falling on their heads,
But they’re warm and cozy.
They’ll simmer in the steamy spring
Until their cheeks are rosy!


- Jennifer Bové
