on Tuning Into Nature by Fran Avni & Jackie Cytrynbaum


There's something that I've been trying to figure out

I've been wondering a very long time.

I've thought and I've thought but I just don't know,

Will you help solve this mystery for me?



Did you ever hear an ant say "hello?"

Does it bark does it squeak, does it moo?

Did you ever hear an ant say "hello?"

Tell me what does an ant say to you?


I saw an anthill as I was walking down the street

The ants were carrying crumbs and bugs inside.

I thought that this would be the perfect time to meet

But they didn't stop to say hello

They walked around my feet.




I sent an invitation to come to tea

Everyone was welcome I wrote.

Would you be so kind as to RSVP

But they never never never never answered me.




I wondered how they marched in a line so straight

They never seemed to bump into each other.

Did they have traffic lights 6, 7 or 8

That told them where to go or when to wait?
