Information About The Ants Go Marching

"The Ants Go Marching One By One" is a well known children's song but its authorship is unknown. The song is sung following the tune of the US Civil War song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home". This very song was the theme song of the animation movie 'Antz'.

The tune to this song seems to date back to the American Civil War. "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again" was first published in 1863 and the lyrics refer to family longing for the return of their relatives and friends from battle and was sung by both sides in the war.

The lady singing this sucks. She acts like she is talking to little Kids and is way out of tune. I was looking for the original ants go Marching song, not the 1800 war song but not the little kid version Either.

Lady, you suck. That was horrible! A kid would have been more entertaining. I suggest that you should never sing in public again.
