The Ants Go Marching (with Lyrics)

The Ants Go Marching is a popular kids’ song that teaches counting and rhyme.

Here is the tune, followed by the lyrics:

This version is by Super Simple Songs.

Lyrics:

The ants go marching one by one
Hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one
Hurrah, hurrah
The ants go marching one by one
The little one stops to suck his thumb
And they all go marching down to the ground to get out of the rain
Boom boom boom

Repeat the verses, changing the number of ants and the action line:

The ants go marching two by two
The little one stops to tie his shoe

The ants go marching three by three
The little one stops to climb a tree

The ants go marching four by four
The little one stops to shut the door

The ants go marching five by five
The little one stops to take a dive

The ants go marching six by six
The little one stops to pick up sticks

The ants go marching seven by seven
The little one stops to pray to heaven

The ants go marching eight by eight
The little one stops to roller skate

The ants go marching nine by nine
The little one stops to check the time

The ants go marching ten by ten
The little one stops to shout, “The End!”
