I’m an Ant


Listen to this song


Deep underground is a little ant town… 

From egg, larva, pupa to the adult that you see,
My head, thorax and abdomen make up me.
I have a hard exoskeleton; I’m soft inside.
I dig under the soil where I live, eat and hide. 

I’m an ant. I’m an ant. Ants come from eggs.
I’m an ant. I’m an ant, and I have 6 legs.
I’m an ant, an insect with 2 antennae.
I’m an ant. I’m an ant. I work all day. 

My mom, the queen, is in charge of the nest.
In thousands, we work with so little rest.
I’m weak if alone, but in groups I can fight
To protect my nest all day and all night. 

I’m an ant. I’m an ant. Ants come from eggs.
I’m an ant. I’m an ant, and I have 6 legs.
I’m an ant, an insect with 2 antennae.
I’m an ant. I’m an ant. I work all day. 

I eat other insects, sweets, and seeds.
I store honey in my stomach from flowers and trees.
When I walk, I leave a smelly trail for my friends,
So they can find my path from beginning to end. 

I’m an ant. I’m an ant. Ants come from eggs.
I’m an ant. I’m an ant, and I have 6 legs.
I’m an ant, an insect with 2 antennae.
I’m an ant. I’m an ant. I work all day. 

Deep underground is a little ant town.
