I swallowed a but it was totally worth it
It was sunny outside, the day was perfect
I was running through the green grass
The bug was in the air
And neither of us thought we’d meet each other there

I swallowed a bug and it was totally gross
But it was better than the time that one flew up my nose
Yeah I was out by the bog where it’s wet and swampy
But I’m not gonna let a little bug stop me

I swallowed a bug yeah, I swallowed a bug
And oh!
It’s gonna happen sometimes
But it’s all fine just play in the sunshine

I once met a little fly flew in my left eye
I was riding on my bicycle just passing by
And I’m not gonna lie
It hurt a little bit, but, hey I’m tough
And I can handle it

I swallowed a bug when I was out in the forest
But those were his woods I was the tourist
And I felt bad for a minute or two
But I was out in the woods, man, what could I do?

Dan plays a great piano solo!

I swallowed a bug when I was out on the farm
I never meant to do that little bug any harm
But the veggies were ripe
And I was pickin’ peas
And the bug flew away right aftezr I sneezed. Achoo!
I even swallowed a bug when I was flying my kite
Yeah I swallowed a bug but I’m not gonna cry
If you are what you eat does that mean I can fly?
