Ants Go Marching
(flannel script)
The ants go marching one by one, harrah, harrah,
The ants go marching one by one, harrah, harrah,
The ants go marching one by one,
The little one stops for a hamburger bun,
And they all go marching on…

(Repeat with:)
The ants go marching two by two.... piece of fruit...
The ants go marching three by three... slice of cheese...
The ants go marching four by four... ear of corn...
The ants go marching five by five... French fries...
The ants go marching six by six... carrot sticks...
The ants go marching seven by seven... slice of heaven... (chocolate cake)
The ants go marching eight by eight... a grape
The ants go marching nine by nine... melon rind...
The ants go marching ten by ten... a burger again...

Who Is Buzzing in My Yard?
(Tune: "London Bridge")
Who is buzzing in my yard,
In my yard, in my yard,
Who is buzzing in my yard?   It's a bee.
(repeat with: other insects fluttering, crawling, hopping, etc.)

Little Miss Muffet
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet, eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider, and sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away...

Come back, Sally!  Come back, Sam!
