A Monkey’s Tale
British English
Level 4
Chant 1
Up is good
Down is bad
The world is like that blue flower
Eat it and it makes you sleep
Up is good
Down is bad
Up is good
Down is bad
Smell a blue flower to cure you
Good up here, bad down there
Up is good
Down is bad

Chant 2
It’s a Woonko, how horrible
He smells and why won’t he cover his ears
A Woonko, how horrible
And in front of the king too
It’s a Woonko, how horrible
He gives a loud cry
A Woonko, how horrible
Just like he did in the jungle
It’s a Woonko, how horrible
He smells and why won’t he cover his ears
A Woonko, how horrible
And in front of the king too

Chant 3
“Long live the queen”
Hear the Laankos shout
“Long live the queen”
Sebastian’s cruel days are gone
“Forget your fear
A brave Woonko helped me
No more fear
We’ll make our world a better place”
“Long live the queen”
Hear the Laankos shout
“Long live the queen”
Sebastian’s cruel days are gone
