lyrics

where were you, where you there
when the clouds of bugs were flying everywhere
the swarm of 87 done crossed the line
now 17 years and they're back again
well are they foe or are they friend
the time of the magicicada is now at hand

cicada, the magic cicada
they're stormin and a-swarmin across the land

well you can't run, you can't hide
and forget about insecticide
they crawl in every space that you might ???
well their eyes are buggin' so bright and red
their moanin' and a groanin' gonna wake up the dead
they looka like they was comin' right up from hell

cicada, the magic cicada
they're stormin and a-swarmin across the land

now come-a 2021
should my ???
the big brood of bugs'll be bustin' on back again
crawlin' on up through my bones
on their way to that ???
and whether i'm here or not it matters not to them

cicada, the magic cicada
they're stormin and a-swarmin across the land
they're stormin and a-swarmin across the land
they're stormin and a-swarmin across the land
where were you
