Oh! The mother shaming! So wrong! Do you think she was egging her little monkeys on to jump on the bed? “Next in line for the broken head. Begin jumping… NOW.” No no no! I’ll bet she scolded them, told them to stop, even threatened them to stop, but guess what: lil’ monkeys gonna jump as soon as mama monkey leave the room! I suppose she should also be blamed for every cavity her little monkeys get?! Sheesh! Blaming the mama - that’s bananas!!
I loved that song as a kid and would giggle at the monkeys dismay. As an adult who has recently sang the song to my niece, I was horrified at the idea of “hey just because each of the other monkeys seriously injured themselves, don’t worry get back up there and jump again” WTF
@lseeber OMG, my pre teen loves! Saw them in Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in 6th grade. Jimmy Hendrix opened for them…needless to say that didn’t work out to well for Jimmy. I am proud to say my friend and I didn’t boo him. We were just very confused by him. Did he just play the guitar with his teeth??? Would have loved to have seen him a few years later!
