The Lyrics

Some Fine Rome Ants,
Bought on Ebay
These Fine Rome Ants
Arrived today..
There's only two, how can they
Be called an ant farm?
Blew thirty bucks on
Two scrawny bugs that can't charm!
Some Fine Rome Ants,
It seems these are
One's named Nero,
And one, Caesar...
The listing said, Like fleas,
They've been trained to dance,
They can't even crawl on plants..
These are Some Fine Rome Ants!

Some Fine Rome Ants
Are they Jokin'?
They came postmarked,
From Hoboken..
The package didn't include
A sand and glass frame
Looks like I sucker bit
On that old dumb ass game!
Some Fine Rome Ants
They did "Git Me'
One ain't movin'
And one bit me!
Now through my microscope,
I'm taking a glance,
They both look like Jack Palance!
These are Some Fine Rome Ants!

Thanks Kristof and Stuart....they probably came over with Columbus, Stuart..I think he was Italian..wasn't he?

Couldn't resist the title of this one, even though I DKTOS - and as Kristof pointed out, that "jokin'/Hoboken" couplet was excellent. And if you don't like 'em, you could always say goodbye to them here:
