Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? ...If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn't have to draft me, I'd join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I'll go to jail, so what? We've been in jail for 400 years.

Muhammed Ali (1942-2016)

Usage

English Months of the year can be tricky for young learners of English to remember. The first step is to get them to know the name of their birthday month. This can be done using a calendar. Then listen to the song and when someone hears their birthday month they jump. There is an interlude in the middle where months can be called out randomly. After this children can be encouraged to dance to the song and jump and call out their birthday month. Then build up to singing the whole song.
