Beware the Thunder Bug

Have you ever caught a thunder bug,
The lightning bug’s twin brother?
I have, my friend — and tell you what,
I’ll never catch another!

They’re exactly like a lightning bug
In almost every way.
But I put mine in my room and now
I haven’t slept for days.

‘Cause every time a thunder bug
Starts his lightning flashing
CRRR-ACK!
BOOM!
WHAM!
BANG!
Thunder soon comes CRASHING!
