Mumpty Bumpty

Humpty Dumpty and No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed Mash-up

Mar 10, 2023
A person is seated with their back in view and motioning toward their left side with their left hand while in the right a second person is reaching both of their hands towards the back as if they are going to massage or adjust that area of the person’s back.

Mumpty Bumpty laid in bed,

Mumpty Bumpty twisted their head

(and everything with a joint);

Mumpty Bumpty went to the chiropractor and Mumpty’s bones said:

Pop! Crack! We are out of whack!

The Bumpty was worked out of Mumpty

which left them feeling jumpty

and gettin’ up to startin’ sumpting

and no more Bumptys came out of Mumpty

until Mumpty no Bumpty laid in bed…
