When Monkey Goes to the Doctor
(Tune: “Bear Went Over the Mountain;” use with monkey and props)
When monkey goes to the doctor,
When monkey goes to the doctor
When monkey goes to the doctor,
They listen to his heart.

They listen to his heart,
They listen to his heart
When monkey goes to the doctor, they listen to his heart
(Repeat with: They take his temperature… They look into his ears… He gets a lollipop)

If You’re Sick and You Know It
(Tune: “If You’re Happy and You Know It”)

If you’re sick and you know it, rub your throat – Sore, sore
If you’re sick and you know it, give a cough – Cough, Cough
If you’re sick and you know it, give a sneeze – Achoo!

Itsy Bitsy Monkey
The itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the coconut tree
Down came a coconut and bopped him on the knee
Along came his Mommy, who kissed away the pain
And the itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the tree again.

Miss Polly Had a Dolly
Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So, she called for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And he said, "Miss Polly, put her straight to bed."
He wrote on the paper for a pill, pill, pill.
Said, "I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill."

This Little Piggy Hurt His Toe
This little piggy hurt his toe
This little piggy said, "Oh! Oh! Oh!"
This little piggy laughed and was glad
This little piggy cried and was sad
This little piggy was oh-so-good
She called the doctor as fast as she could

The Soap on Your Hands
(Tune: Wheels On the Bus)
The soap on your hands goes sud-sud-sud
Sud-sud-sud, sud-sud-sud
The soap on your hands goes sud-sud-sud
And the germs go down the drain

Wash, Wash, Wash Your Hands
(Tune: Row Your Boat)
Wash, wash, wash your hands
Wash them nice and clean
Wash on bottom and on top
And fingers in between
