Ants in Your Pants by Nancy Stewart

Song and Activity Guide by Nancy Stewart, opens a new window

This is a movement song!

On chorus:
If you have ants in your pants (clap, clap, clap,)
Or fleas in your knees (clap, clap, clap)
and you feel like a wiggle worm (children wiggle)

Verse 1. Children lie down and wiggle, pretending to be worms.
Verse 2. Children jump up and down
Verse 3. Children get up and dance
Verse 4. Children wiggle and dance again!

Every time chorus is sung, instruct children to stop what they are doing, sit back down, and get ready to clap.
