I had a Little Monkey     by: Falconer, Joyce

I had a little monkey,
Its name wis Jocky Broon,
I pit it in the bath tub,
Tae see if it wid droon.
It drunk up aa the watter,
It ate a cake o soap,
It deed the next mornin,
Wi a bubble in its throat.
In came the doctor,
In came the nurse,
In came the lady
Wi the big blackpurse.
Oot went the doctor,
Oot went the nurse,
Oot went the lady
Wi the big blackpurse.
