    Default Words to "I woke up sunday morning and looked upon the wall"

    My Brownies have always really enjoyed the song about fleas and bedbugs playing ball. Our previous leader always led it, so I can't remember the words - and I need to know it for tomorrow if I can!

    I've found the following, plus obviously the chorus, but I'm thinking I'm not quite remembering it all. Can anyone help?

    I woke up Sunday morning and looked up on the wall,
    The fleas and bedbugs were playing a game of ball.
    The score was 3 to nothing, the bedbugs were ahead,
    The fleas hit a homerun and knock me out of bed.


    Thank you!

    (p.s - if anyone can describe the actions, that would be helpful too!!)

    erm, i just remember:

    i woke up one morning and looked up on the wall,
    mosquitos and the bedbugs were having a game of ball
    the score was four to seven, mosquitos were ahead,
    the bedbugs hit a homerun and knocked me out of bed,
    singing eeny meeny meeny miney mo...

    so essentially the same as yours but with a slightly different syllable count. the actions were pretty much acting out each part of the story (waking up, looking, mosquitos (fangs) and bedbugs (antennae), baseball, 4 2 7, mosquitos (fangs again) touch head, bedbugs (antennae again), baseball, fall backwards)

    sorry if this is no help at all! =S

    Thanks, that is helpful - I thought it was something other than fleas, and it was...mosquitoes!

    The last part that I learnt is

    Catch a whipper whopper by his toe
    And if he hollers, hollers, hollers
    Donít let him go
    Singing eenie, meenie and a miney moe.

    But we sing beetles not mosquitoes

    What's wrong with custard sprinkled with apple crumble???
