rich r Songs about bugs, insects, spiders, snails, worms (99* d) Lyr Add: BEETLES and THOUSAND LEGGED WORM 02 Aug 99

Order: Coleoptera
(Tune "Ode To Joy")

Beetles are not dirty bugs
Spiders, scorpions, or slugs
Heroes of the insect realm
They sport winged, burnished helms
They are shining and divine ,
AThey are lovely and just fine
Beetles do not bite or sting
They love almost everything.

Class: Myriapoda Subclass: Diplopoda, the millipedes
(Tune: "Polly Wolly Doodle")
"Tell me," said the thousand-legged worm,
"Has anybody seen a leg of mine? For if it can't be found I shall have to squirm around
On the other nine hundred ninety-nine.

Squirm around, squirm around
ON the other nine hundred ninety nine
If it can't be found I shall have to squirm around
On the other nine hundred ninety-nine."

Order: Diptera mosquitoes and blackflies
(Tune: "Battle Hymn of Republic:)

The mosquitoes wore tuxedos and the blackflies wore black ties
The bride she was a spide and the groom he was a snake
They were going to a wedding in my Aunt Lucy's bedding
And she was the wedding cake.

Glory, Glory Hallelujah
You don't feel itchy, Auntie, do ya?
Glory glory hallelujah
The bugs marched down the aisle.

The little honeymooners were nice and cozy in her bloomers
And the guests all took their places in Aunt Lucy's pillowcases
The little beasts had such a feast, the danced and flew and soared
All while Aunt Lucy snored.

Repeat chorus
