The Ants Go Softly Round and Round

(To the tune of When Johnny Comes Marching Home)


The ants go softly ‘round and ‘round.

Sh! Sh!

The ants go softly ‘round and ‘round.

Sh! Sh!

The ants go softly ‘round and ‘round,

They creep and crawl upon the ground,

And they all move closer,

Eyeing the picnic feast
