Lyrics and Chords


C                                                                          G
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.


  1. C                                                                                     G
    Juney Bug comes in the month of June, Lightning Bug in May,
    Bed Bug comes any ol’ time but he ain’t gonna stay.
  2. C                                                     G
    Squito he flies high, squito he flies low,
    If old mosquito lands on me he ain’t gonna fly no more.
  3. C                                                                      G
    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.
  4. C                                                                                  G
    Peanut sittin’ on a railroad track, his heart was all a-flutter,
    Along came a train down the track, Toot Toot, peanut butter.
  5. C                                                                          G
    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.
  6. C                                                                             G
    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.
  7. C                                                                    G
    A doctor fell into a well and broke his collar bone.
    I think that he should tend the sick and leave the well alone.
  8. C                                                                                                    G
    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.”
  9. C                                                                                        G
    Little bugs have little-er bugs, sitting on their backs to bite ‘em.
    Little-er bugs have littler-er bugs and so ad infinitum.
