1670 – Dance All Night

Dance All Night
When dancing with bugs, be mindful of your toes

Creepy Crawly Bawl

Oh, come one, come one and all
to the creepy crawly ball
to dance the night away with bugs and pests.
It’s the bug black tie affair—
all the insects will be there—
You’re wanted as the little life forms’ guests.

All the critters, small or big,
shimmy, jitter, shake and jig,
or trip the light fantastic with some fleas.
When the midnight bell is here,
all the roaches gather near
as spiders strum the banjos on their knees.

It’s a sight to make you grin,
watching rolley-polleys spin
while orchestras of crickets chirp and tweet.
Mambo with a millipede,
but don’t try to take the lead;
he’ll step and step and step upon your feet.

See the creatures on parade
at this buggy masquerade
as every bug arrives from far and near.
Wear your finest, fancy clothes,
but be mindful of your toes,
or else they won’t invite you back next year.
