Do you know verse 2 and verse 4 of "Some Little Bug is Going to Find You Some Day"? Who is the song writer?

Some Little Bug is Going to Find You Some Day

In these days of indigestion

It is often times a question

As to what to eat and what to leave alone.

For each microbe and Bacillus

Has a different way to kill us,

And in time they always claim us for their own.

There are germs of every kind

In any food that you can find

In the market or upon the bill of fare.

Drinking water’s just as risky

As the so-called deadly whiskey,

And it’s often a mistake to breath the air.

Some little bug is going to find you some day,

Some little bug will creep behind you some day,

Then he’ll send for his bug friends

And all your earthly trouble ends:

Some little bug is going to find you some day.

Skip verse II

Go to verse III

Take a slice of nice fried onion

And you’re fit for Dr. Munyon,

Apple dumplings kill you quicker than a train

Chew a cheesy midnight “rabbit”

And a grave you’ll soon inhabit--

Ah, to eat at all is such a foolish game.

Eating huckleberry pie

Is a pleasing way to die,

While sauerkraut brings on softening of the brain.

When you eat banana fritters

Every undertaker titters

And the casket-makers nearly go insane.

Some little bug is going to find you some day,

Some little bug will creep behind you some day

With a nervous little quiver

He’ll give cirrhosis of the liver:

Some little bug is going to find you some day.

Skip verse IV

Go to verse V

All those crazy foods they mix will float across the River Styx

Or they’ll start us climbing up the milky way.

And the meals we eat in courses

Mean a hearse and two black horses so before a meal

Some people always pray.

Lucious grapes breed ’appendicitis, and the juice leads to gastritis.

So there’s only death to greet us either way:

And fried liver’s nice but, mind you,

Friends will soon ride slow behind you

And the papers then will have nice things to say.

Some little bug is going to find you some day.

Some little bug will creep behind you some day.

Eat some sauce, they call it chili.

On your breast they’ll place a lily.

Some little bug is going to find you some day. Β ♪♫ † Mmm

Update:

Actually it is a song we would sing when I was young and it was already old when I was young lol
