THE ANTS GO MARCHING
(tune: Johnny Comes Marching Home)

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah!

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah!

The ants go marching one by one,

The little one stops to suck his thumb.

 

(CHORUS) And they' ail go marching

Down, and around and under the ground,

By the drain and through the rain...

 

The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah!

The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah!

The ants go marching two by two,

The little one stops to tie his shoe. CHORUS

 

The ants go marching three by three

The little one stops to climb a tree.

  CHORUS

 

The ants go marching four by four .

The little one stops to shut the door.

. CHORUS

 

The ants go marching five by five

The little one stops to take a dive.

  CHORUS

 

The ants go marching six by six

The little one stops to pick up sticks.

  CHORUS

 

The ants go marching seven by seven

The little one stops and prays to heaven.

  CHORUS .

 

The ants go marching eight by eight

The little one stops to shut the gate.

   CHORUS

 

The ants go marching nine by nine

The little one stops to eat and dine.

   CHORUS

 

The ants go marching ten by ten .

The little one stops to say THE . END!
