The Lyrics

It's the time for bugs
It's the place for bugs

What is this thing that makes us scream
Yet crawls away from us?

Who wants to eat cicadas?
Who wants to eat cicadas?

[high-pitched cicada mating call]
(...zeee-zee-zeee...)

They're not ants, these bugs
They're all excited, these bugs

This world has every seventeen years set aside for bugs

Who wants to eat cicadas?
Who wants to eat cicadas?

[high-pitched cicada mating call]
(...zeee...)

Who DARES to eat cicadas?

[high-pitched cicada mating call]
(...zeee-zee-zeee...)

...before they die...

Just touch their wings to your lips
Bite down on their antenna tips
And you can have cicadas
And you can love cicadas
Cicadas are yours today

Who wants to eat cicadas?
Who wants to eat cicadas?
Cicadas are yours today
Who hates cicadas anyway?
