SONGS

BUG JUICE
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: On Top of Old Smokey

At camp with the Cub Scouts,
They gave us a drink,
We thought it was Kool-Aid,
Because it was pink.

But the thing that they told us,
Would’ve grossed out a moose.
For that great tasting pink drink,
Was really Bug Juice!

It looks fresh and fruity,
Like tasty Kool-Aid.
But the bugs that are in it,
Were murdered with Raid!

Next time you drink Bug Juice,
And a fly drives you mad,
He’s just getting even,
‘Cause you swallowed his dad!

IT’S AN INSECT COVERED WORLD
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: “It’s a Small World”

It’s a world of centipedes, a world of moths,
It’s a world of katydids, a world of wasps,
There’s so much that we share,
That it’s time we’re aware,
Its an insect covered world.

CHORUS:

It’s an insect covered world,
It’s an insect covered world,
It’s an insect covered world,
It’s an insect covered world,

It's a world of beetles, a world of fleas,
It’s a world of caterpillars, a world of bees,
In this world that we know,
There is so much to show,
It’s an insect covered world.

CHORUS

Spotted Bed Bugs
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: Onward Christian Soldiers

Onward spotted bed bugs.
Marching up the sheets.
Tickle, tickle, tickle.
On poor Grandma's feet.
Grandma gets excited.
Grandpa gets his gun.
Boom, boom, boom, boom.
Boom, boom, boom, boom.
See those bed bugs run.
Onward spotted bed bugs.
Marching off the sheets.
Carrying off the wounded ---
And poor grandma's feet

BUGS AND SPIDERS
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: Are you Sleeping?

Bugs and spiders,
Bugs and spiders,
See them creep,
See them creep,
Show them to my Mother,
Show them to my Mother,
Watch her scream,
Watch her scream

CREEPY CRAWLY BUGS
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: Old MacDonald

All us Cub Scouts love those bugs,
Creepy crawly bugs.
And in the woods, we found some worms
Creepy crawly worms.
With a wiggle, wiggle here,
And a wiggle, wiggle there,
Here a wiggle, there a wiggle
Everywhere a wiggle, wiggle.
All us Cub Scouts love those bugs,
Creepy crawly bugs.

Other Creepy Crawly Bugs.

Bees – with a buzz, buzz

Ants – with a bite, bite

Crickets – with a chirp, chirp

Beetles – with a click, click

The Ants Go Marching
Hear the tune at :http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/antsgo.htm

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
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

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
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

The ants go marching three by three,
The little one stops to climb a tree

The ants go marching four by four,
The little one stops to shut the door

The ants go marching five by five,
The little one stops to take a dive

The ants go marching six by six,
The little one stops to pick up sticks

The ants go marching seven by seven,
The little one stops to pray to heaven

The ants go marching eight by eight,
The little one stops to shut the gate

The ants go marching nine by nine,
The little one stops to check the time

The ants go marching ten by ten,
The little one stops to say "THE END"

Flea Songs
Southern NJ Council

In these songs, the song leader

  • sings (says) a line and the audience repeats the line.

  • has everyone join in the beat alternately slapping thighs and clapping hands before the singing starts:

Flea #1
This version would be great for Cub Scouts

Flea!

I'M A LITTLE EARTHWORM
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: I'm a Little Teapot

 

I'm a little earthworm, short and fat
Bet you can't tell my front from my back.
I spend all day moving in the dirt,
Helping all the roots to breathe.

 

King of the Camp
Southern NJ Council
 Tune: King of the Road

Flies, Bugs, and bumblebees
Chigger bites on my knees
Band-aids from head to toe
Gotta sunburn on my nose
I've got sand in the food I eat
I've got blisters on both my feet
I'm in pain but can't complain
I'm King of the Camp
