Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry.
Please keep it cool in mid-July.
Bless the walls where termites dine,
While ants and roaches march in time.
Bless our yard where spiders pass and
Fire ant castles built in the grass.
Bless the garage, a home to please
carpenter beetles, ticks and fleas.
Bless the love bugs, two by two,
the gnats & mosquitoes that feed on you.
Millions of creatures that fly or crawl, in
Texas, Lord, you’ve put them all!
But this is home, and here we’ll stay,
so thank you Lord, for insect spray!
