Ants Go Marching, The

The video below is slightly different than the standard lyrics, but the tune and rhythm are both great.



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 her 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 her 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, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching three by three, hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching three by three,
The little one stops to climb a tree
And they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

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 says, "Let's do it again!"
But they all go marching down to the ground
To get out of the rain;
They all go marching DOWN!
