The Ugly Bug Ball Lyrics

The Ugly Bug Ball (アグリー・バグ・ボール(『夏の魔術』より)) - Burl Ives

Written by:Richard M. Sherman/Robert B. Sherman

Once a lonely caterpillar sat and cried

 

To a sympathetic beetle by his side

 

I've got nobody to hug

 

I'm such an ugly bug

Then a spider and a dragonfly replied

 

If you're serious and want to win a bride

 

Come along with us to the glorious annual ugly bug ball

Come on let's crawl

Gotta crawl gotta crawl

To the ugly bug ball

To the ball to the ball

And a happy time we'll have there

 

One and all at the ugly bug ball

 

While the crickets clicked their cricky melodies

 

All the ants were fancy dancing with the fleas

 

Then up from under the ground

 

The worms came squirming around

Oh they danced until their legs were nearly lame

 

Every little crawling creature you could name

 

Everyone was glad what a time they had

They were so happy they came

Come on let's crawl

 

To the ugly bug ball

 

And a happy time we'll have there

One and all at the ugly bug ball

 

Then our caterpillar saw a pretty queen

 

She was beautiful in yellow black and green

 

He said would you care to dance

Their dancing led to romance

Then she sat upon his caterpillar knees

 

And he gave his caterpillar queen a squeeze

 

Soon they'll honeymoon build a big cocoon

Thanks to the ugly bug ball

Come on let's crawl

Gotta crawl gotta crawl

To the ugly bug ball

To the ball to the ball

And a happy time we'll have there

 

One and all at the ugly bug ball
