Monkeys are little famous and easy in India to locate. It is almost found in or around any old heritage temple sides (in season). I sing this for my baby Ishaan and even enact for him. He loves to see me doing this and laugh 🙂 It is a 4 line ryhme with a tune which I remember I  heard when I was young.
