Nicholas Cricket plays every night in the Bug-a-Wug Cricket Band. Moonlight glows and summer wind blows, rabbits come dancing on tip-tippy toes. The music is just so grand! Nicholas Cricket plays with all his might in the Bug-a-Wug Cricket Band. Little Lake shines and Little Stream winds, peep-peep-peepers come dancing through the vines. The music is just so grand! Nicholas Cricket is a banjo picker in the Bug-a-Wug Cricket Band. Crickets play fiddles and guitars with middles curvy and round as a rantum riddle and ducks come dancing ducky-hey-ducky-diddle. The music is just so grand! In the blue blue night when the moon is bright underneath the leaves of summer if we're quiet and quick we can find Cricket Nick and the washboard strummers and the slap-a-spoon drummers and the crick-crick-crickety kazoo hummers. We can dance all night 'til the rosy dawn comes. The music is just so grand! Ladybugs strut and toads sashay, moths and mantises wing their way, snap-turtles swing and grasshoppers sway while Nick and the crickets just play and play. The music is just so grand! All the Bug-a-Wugs grow sleepy and still and go back with the moonlight under the hill. Back to the trees the peepers pop, back to the hollow the rabbits hop, back to the willows the weary ducks waddle and back to our beds our tired legs toddle to dream as Little Stream winds its way into tomorrow. The music was just so grand! The music was just so grand! The music was just so grand!
