Children’s song, U.S.A.

“Baby Bumblebee” is a nursery rhyme and singing game about a child who is stung by a bumblebee, and his mommy is obviously not so happy about it. The melody of the song is based on the stare song of Arkansas (from 1949 to 1963) named “The Arkansas Traveler”, which was composed in 19th century by Colonel Sanford C. ‘Sandy’ Faulkner. On the same melody there are several known versions of the lyrics, including the children’s song “Baby bumblebee”.

The form of the song is “repetitive” (see also “Finger Family”, “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, “Rain, Rain, Go Away”, “Wheels on the Bus”, “Old MacDonald had a Farm”).

1. I’m bringing home my baby bumble bee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m bringing home my baby bumble bee –
Ouch! It stung me!

2. I’m squishin’ up my baby bumble bee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m squishin’ up my baby bumble bee –
Ooh! It’s yucky!

3. I’m lickin’ up my baby bumble bee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m lickin’ up my baby bumble bee –
Ick! I feel sick!

“Baby Bumblebee”  Teaching idea & activities

As the song is addressed to younger children, who generally like to accompany their songs with movements, combine every verse with corresponding finger or hand movements.


– Cup hands together as if holding bee and shake one hand as if just stung you (for “bringing home my baby bumblebee”),
– squish’ bee between palms of hand (for “squishin’ up my baby  bumblebee”), or
– pretend to lick bee off hands (for lickin’ up my baby bumblebee”).

Encourage the children to invent their own movements following the text.
