The following is sung to the tune of 'Pop Goes the Weasel.'

Have you seen my monkey, Jack?
Gay old Jack, so funny!
He can climb, or nuts can crack,
Or take your money.

As the children begin to sing, '=a=' and '=b=' join hands and dance down
to '=o=,' then change hands and dance back again to []; then '=a=' goes
behind '=e=' as shown by line '=g=,' and stands at '=c=,' while '=b='
goes behind '=f=,' following the line '=h=' and stands at '=d='; '=e='
and '=f=' proceed in the same way, and each couple follows in turn.
