Five crickets over by the creek,
All discussed heading for the bay
They wanted to see the big “world”
On a few leaves they got away
Then the water picked up some speed
Those green little crickets sailed by
Their entire world was spinning fast
As the waters edge seemed to fly
The big bay was now up ahead
So much bigger than they all thought
“Oh my goodness” they all chirped out
“Just whatever have we all sought?”
In unison they all cried out
“Why did we ever want to roam'
So tempting to see the big world...
Now we all want to go back home...
They all jumped high and reached the shore
Now heading back to their homestead
When the happy crickets returned
Their amazing tale was soon spread
