The ugly bug ball: Burl Ives 
(From the 1963 film. Summer Magic)

(Capo on first fret)

G      D7
Once a lonely caterpillar sat and cried
     G
To a sympathetic beetle by his side
           D7
I've got nobody to hug
            G
I'm such an ug-i-ly bug
G      D7
Then a spider and a dragonfly replied
          G                         Em
If you're serious and want to win a bride
                   G                D7              G
Come along with us, to the glorious annual ugly bug ball

CHORUS
G             C
Come on let's crawl (gotta crawl gotta crawl)
                G              
To the ugly bug ball (to the ball to the ball)
                       C           D       G           C        G
And a happy time we'll have there, one and all and the ugly bug ball


G         D7
While the crickets click their cricky melodies
        G 
All the ants were fancy dancing with the fleas
             D7
Then up from under the ground
               G 
The worms came squirming around
G       D7
Oh they danced until their legs were nearly lame
      G                                  Em
Every little crawling creature you could name
                   G
Everyone was glad,   What a time they had
D7                      G
They were so happy they came

CHORUS

G        D7
Then our caterpillar saw a pretty queen
        G 
She was beautiful and yellow black and green
              D7
He said would you care to dance
              G     
Their dancing lead to romance
G        D7
Then she sat upon his caterpillar knee
       G                            Em
And he gave his caterpillar queen a squeeze
                       G
Soon they'll honeymoon,  Build a big cocoon
D7                     G 
Thanks to the ugly bug ball

CHORUS
