Karen Kirkland is a professional musician and teacher with over 30 years experience in music education. “Ants in my pants” is a lively, positive action song with a simple, memorable melody. The catchy chorus uses three part harmonies and actions suitable for all abilities in the classroom or school, junior choirs. This song is one of a series of songs written for KS1/KS2. It has been written especially for a project called “Shropshire Sings 2016” and is being premiered in July at this event organised by Shropshire Music Service. It has a lively beat and humorous lyrics.

A full vocal demo version and backing track for this song is available on request. The theme of the song is that it explains to adults why children can’t sit still for very long. There is plenty of opportunity in this song for dancing and actions. An enjoyable song to perform and feedback from teachers has been very positive.

Ants in my pants
Ants in my pants
Let’s all dance the ants dance
Ants in my pants
Ants in my pants
Dance the ants in my pants dance.

Mum says sit still
But she can’t see
It’s very hard for you and me
Wriggle and squiggle all day long
To the ants in my pants song

Dad says sit still
But he can’t see
It’s very hard for you and me
Giggle and tickle all day long
To the ants in my pants song

Teacher says sit still
But they can’t see
It’s very hard for you and me
Itching and fidgety all day long
To the ants in my pants song
