Can you hear the chirping? I think it’s working

Look behind you because I’m lurking

In your shadow, green like aloe

I’m going commando if you’re stepping in my meadow

Leaping large, small in mass, but froggy fast

The gas I pass smells like sassafras

Was that crass? Where’s my class? Please don’t feed me to the bass

Me and the boys will bring the poise

Don’t shoot the messenger, I feel the temperature, and I’m about to bring the noise

Because I’m a cricket and I’m living in your thicket 

I’m right under your nose, snickerin’ when you pick it

I’ve had it with this picnic so let me be explicit

Watch your step or watch this cricket be the one to punch your ticket

Hear the beat drop? My hip-hop is nonstop

Watch me hip hop from this treetop

Out of sight, without flight, and sitting tight, I’m not a biter

But I’ll nibble on some grass just to get a little higher

Munching leaves, life’s a breeze, don’t make me school you about the birds and the bees

You see these knees? Cricket please, my vertical is a miracle, clearing four inches with ease

I’ll be your heart stopper, garden helicopter, throw some extra lettuce on this Whopper

Your kung fu is strong but mine is proper, grasshopper, my legs are fully loaded and you’ve become my canon fodder

Because I’m a cricket and I’m living in your thicket 

I’m right under your nose, snickerin’ when you pick it

I’ve had it with this picnic so let me be explicit

Watch your step or watch this cricket be the one to punch your ticket

Insect in view, inspect your shoe, respect is due

This debut won’t make the news but don’t misconstrue

Adjust my antennae to stay in tune

Predator perfected, direct-injected, I’m resurrected from my cocoon

Because I’m a cricket and I’m living in your thicket 

I’m right under your nose, snickerin’ you when you pick it

I’ve had it with this picnic so let me be explicit

Watch your step or watch this cricket be the one to punch your ticket
