Tiny baby ant,

And his auntie Bee,

Were having so much fun,

Climbing up a tree…

Tiny baby ant,

Saw some monkeys play,

Look 11 monkeys,

On the tree today!

I only count to 10,

Said his Auntie Bee,

Are you sure there are 11?

Let me check and see,

Auntie Bee then counted,

And only got to ten,

She checked her math a million times,

And 5 more times again!!!!!

She didn’t get 11,

Not even 9 or 8,

10 + 0 monkeys,

And not one giant APE!!!!!!!!!!

She turned to tiny ant,

“Count them one more time,”

So he counted one by one,

And got one more than nine!

10 + 0 monkeys on the tree today,

10 fun-loving monkeys,

That really like to play!
