Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

"This book is arguably the best known alphabet book on the market today. Telling a tale of alphabetic foolhardiness, a troop of lower case letters (all of them, in fact) go bounding up the nearby coconut tree for a variety of reasons. When the tree can no longer support their weight the little letters find themselves splayed out on the ground. Fortunately the big letters come along to comfort the little ones" - Amazon Review

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of the best-selling books of all time with more than 1 million copies sold.

Here is the full text of the book:

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.

A told B, and B told C, "I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree."

"Wheee!" said D to E F G, "I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree."

Chicka chicka boom boom! Will there be enough room? Here comes H up the coconut tree,

and I and J and tag-along K, all on their way up the coconut tree.

Chicka chicka boom boom! Will there be enough room? Look who’s coming! L M N O P!

And Q R S! And T U V! Still more - W! And X Y Z!

The whole alphabet up the - Oh, no! Chicka chicka... BOOM! BOOM!

Skit skat skoodle doot. Flip flop flee. Everybody running to the coconut tree.

Mamas and papas and uncles and aunts hug their little dears, then dust their pants.

"Help us up," cried A B C.

Next from the pileup skinned-knee D and stubbed-toe E and patched-up F. Then comes G all out of breath.

H is tangled up with I. J and K are about to cry. L is knotted like a tie.

M is looped. N is stopped. O is twisted alley-oop. Skit skat skoodle doot. Flip flop flee.

Look who’s coming! It’s black-eyed P, Q R S, and loose-tooth T. Then U V W wiggle-jiggle free.

Last to come X Y Z. And the sun goes down on the coconut tree...

But - chicka chicka boom boom! Look, there’s a full moon.

A is out of bed, and this is what he said, "Dare double dare, you can’t catch me. Chicka chicka BOOM! BOOM! Chicka chicka BOOM! BOOM!

I’ll beat you to the top of the coconut tree."

Chicka chicka BOOM! BOOM!
