The Ants Came Marching

-6 -6 -6 -6 -7 7 -7 7
The ants came marching one by one:

-6 6 5 6
hurrah, hurrah!

-6 -6 -6 -6 -7 7 -7 7
The ants came marching one by one:

-8 8 7 8
hurrah, hurrah!

8 8 8 8 7 -8 -8 -8
The ants came marching one by one

-7 7 7 7 7 -6 -7 -7 -7
The little one stopped to such his thumb.

7 -8 8 -8 7 -7 -6 -6 -6 6 -6
And they all go marching down around the town.

The ants came marching two by two: hurrah, hurrah!
The ants came marching two by two: hurrah, hurrah!
The ants came marching two by two
The little one stopped to tie his shoe.
And they all go marching down around the town.
