Sometimes in the Spring, our house gets inundated with ants for a couple of days. This song immediately comes to mind. It must be something about our neighborhood, because the lady across the street said she sees them marching in a line on the phone wires above the street. I think that's their route directly into my house! Then they come marching in here, and I can't help singing this song…

*Alternate last 2 lines: "And they all go marching down around the town, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!".
