There Ain’t No Bugs On Me
There ain’t no bugs on me,
There ain’t no bugs on me.
There may be bugs on some of you mugs
But there ain’t no bugs on me.
Juney Bug comes in the month of June, Lightning Bug in May,
Bed Bug comes any ol’ time but he ain’t gonna’ stay.
Squito he flies high, squito he flies low,
If old mosquito lands on me he ain’t gonna’ fly no more.
Bull frog sittin’ on a lily pad, lookin’ up at the sky,
Lily pad broke and the frog fell in, got water in his eye-ball.
Peanut sittin’ on a railroad track, his heart was all a-flutter,
Along came a train down the track, Toot Toot, peanut butter.
We had a cat down on the farm, it had a ball of yarn,
And when the baby kittens were born they all had sweaters on.
We had a goat down on the farm, it ate up old tin cans,
And when the baby goats were born they came in Ford sedans.
A doctor fell into a well and broke his collar bone.
I think that he should tend the sick and leave the well alone.
A farmer slipped on the old barn roof when the rotten boards gave way
And as he fell he shrugged and said “It’s time to hit the hay.”
Little bugs have little-er bugs, sitting on their backs to bite ‘em.
Little-er bugs have littler-er bugs and so ad infinitum.
The first thing Madeline will tell you about herself is that she is a mother and a grandmother, which is how her interest in children's music began. Funded by her classical training , and years of experience as a performer, she writes entertaining and warm, folk-like songs that speak for the children, and sometimes for the parents too. She is passionate about nurturing children's creativity and encouraging their musical participation.
Madeline composes and performs with her favorite instrument, the ukulele. She turned her full focus to children's music starting in 2006 and since then has produced three cd's and won three national awards. She is a dedicated volunteer and performs frequently in the public schools, libraries and sometimes in the children's hospitals, often conducting mini-workshops in song writing for the young. Her other performances include festivals and special events.
