The Lyrics

As it turns out, there are as of this writing actually about 925,000 named species of insects.
Remember the Bugs by Jeffrey Moran

Nine hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred species.
Nine hundred twenty-five thousand insects we know.
Nine hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred species.
How do you count the kinds of insects we know?

In buzzing, in biting, in stinging, in ants at a picnic.
Head, thorax, abdomen. Six legs.
Nine hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred species.
How do you count the kinds of insects we know?

How about house flies?
How about horse flies?
How about fruit flies?
Maybe some may flies.
See some dragon flies.
See some damsel flies.

Nine hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred species.
Nine hundred twenty-five thousand different kinds.
Nine hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred insects.
How do you count all the bugs we’ve described?

Is it their six legs or numbers of wings?
Hard exoskeleton, three main body parts.

Time now to sing out about insects.
Mosquitoes buzzing ‘round your head.
Locusts, cicadas, crickets, and beetles.
Wasps, bees, hornets, katydids.

Remember the bugs.
You have to, have to remember the bugs.
Remember the bugs.
You know that bugs are part of the world.
Remember the bugs.
Measure the bugs.
Seasons of bugs.
Reasons for bugs.
Treasure, take pleasure in the life of bugs.
