Song Description

Explores the deep spiritual question of why God made irritating insects.

Story Behind the Song

I live in Florida and have been attacked too many times by fire ants and bitten by mosquitoes. This is my way of getting back at them.

Hi Kate! This is another cute song, which is particularly interesting in that it asks the kind of questions we all ask at times, but in a playful , and very clever way! Enjoyed it!!

    - Greg Johnson

This is a great Ditty, cute lyric, catchy melody, a good kids sing a long type song. Well sung with just the right amount of exaggerated vocal effects.

    - Jeff Ashbaker
Lyrics

Oh, I believe in miracles; I take a lot on faith.
The parting of the Red Sea was, for God, a piece of cake.
But still there are some things in life I question and I doubt.
And when I stand before the Lord, I hope He?ll hear me out:

(And I?m gonna ask Him. I?ll say)

Chorus:
Lord? Why are there fire ants? Why are there mosquitoes?
Couldn?t we live just as well without any of those?
Oh I can handle bumblebees, grasshoppers tolerate
But anything that bites my leg, I simply hate.

Lord, I?ve enjoyed my stay on earth; the company?s been fine.
I have no gripes about the food. God, You?ve been really kind.
I even like my garden work. To me it is no chore.
But I stepped on a hill today, so I will ask once more? CHORUS

Bridge:
Fire ants, mosquitoes
Biting legs and toes
My life?s in mortal danger of pain where?ere I go

Lord, I am truly grateful for the trips you let me take.
The redwood trees were awesome and Yosemite was great.
Camping out beneath the stars was fun with one exception:
The swollen welts upon my legs leave me with one last question:

Why are there fire ants? Why are there mosquitoes?
Couldn?t we live just as well without any of those?
Lord, thank for the bumblebees, and for my can of Raid ?
(Raid? ? Raid! ? Sound effects)
?Cause anything that bites my legs, I?ll annihilate!
