Whenever we went camping, we had a certain
song we would sing around the campfire.
The ants go marching up and down, Hurrah, Hurrah!
The ants go marching up and down, Hurrah, Hurrah!
The ants go marching up and down,

and under the ground.
this keeps up till everyone has had a turn filling in
the line and then it starts over.
