Bug Songs and Rhymes

June 12, 2009

( tune: The Wheels on the Bus)
The fireflies at night go blink, blink, blink
Blink, blink, blink, blink, blink, blink
The fireflies at night go blink, blink, blink
Out in the garden.

The bees in the flowers go buzz, buzz, buzz
Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz
The bees in the flowers go buzz, buzz, buzz
Out in the garden.

caterpillars/on the leaves/munch
spiders/in the bush/ spin their webs
worms/in the ground/ wiggle and squirm

The Fuzzy Caterpillar
(Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)

The fuzzy caterpillar
Curled up on a leaf,
Spun her little chrysalis
And then fell fast asleep.
While she was sleeping
She dreamed that she could fly,
And later when she woke up
She was a butterfly!

Butterfly Song
(Tune: Up on the Housetop)

First comes a butterfly and lays an egg.
Out comes a caterpillar with many legs.
Oh see the caterpillar spin and spin,
A little chrysalis to sleep in.

Oh, oh ,oh wait and see!
Oh, oh, oh wait and see!
Out of the chrysalis, my oh my,
Out comes a beautiful butterfly!

Speedy Spider Song
(tune:Oh, Susanna)

I was sitting in my room one day
When it came right through the door.
A big spider sped right by me-
Went racing ‘cross the floor.
Oh, that spider! Oh how it scared me so.
But spiders can be good friends. And so I let it go.
I watched it crawl up the wall,
To find a spot just right.
It spun a web so beautiful.
And then went out of sight.
(Repeat chorus)
Now bugs and flies do not scare me,
For I know that it’s true-
That a spiderweb is good to have,
Bugs stick to it like glue.
(Repeat chorus)

Lightning Bug
(tune:You are my Sunshine)
I’m like a “lite brite”
I have a night light.
I fly in circles, up in the sky.
Some call me “lightning”.
When my light’s blinking.
But to my friends, I’m just “firefly.”

While others sleep tight,
flash my night light,
fill the dark sky with light so bright.
Look out your window,
You’ll see me flashing,
And then I’ll turn off and tell you
“good night

Five Busy Bees
Five little busy bees on a day so sunny
Number one said, “I’d like to make some honey”
Number two said, “Tell me, where shall it be?”
Number three said, “In the old honey tree”
Number four said, “Let’s gather pollen sweet”
Number five said, “Let’s take it on our feet”.
Humming their busy little honey bee song.

Five Little Flies
Five little flies buzzing through a hive,
One snuck some honey, and took a deep dive.
Four little flies buzzing through a door,
One slipped and fell, Crash! on the floor.
Three little flies buzzing through the trees,
One bumped the bark and bloodied his knees.
Two little flies buzzing through a shoe,
One held his nose and said, PEE YOO!
One little fly buzzing through a bun,
The swatter goes SPLAT! Now there are none

And don’t forget The Ants Go Marching!
