Think I'll Go Eat Worms!

Sung to the tune of "Polly Wolly Doodle."

Version I

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms,
Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm. 
Up comes the first one, up comes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

Version II

Nobody loves me, everybody hates me
Think I'll go and eat worms
Long ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones
See how they wriggle and squirm

I bite off the heads, and suck out the juice
And throw the skins away
Nobody knows how fat I grow
On worms three times a day
Ohh...nobody loves me.

Version III

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Think I'll go eat worms.
Big fat juicy ones, Eensie weensy squeensy ones,
See how they wiggle and squirm.

Chomp off their heads and squeeze out the juice
And throw their tails away
Nobody knows how I survive
On worms three times a day.

Version IV

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I'm goin' down the garden to eat worms
Long thin slimy ones, short fat fuzzy ones
Ooey gooey, ooey gooey worms

Long thin slimy ones slip down easily
Short fat fuzzy ones don't
Short fat fuzzy ones stick to your teeth   
And the juice goes slurpin' (
slurping noise) down your throat

Version V

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
think I'll go eat worms...
big fat juicy ones, little slimy skinny ones,
hope they don't have germs!"

Have you ever felt this way? Most of us have felt "friendless" at some point, but when you do, remember that the feeling will probably pass. And in the meantime, we DON'T advise you to "go eat worms"! That probably won't help.......but worms DO help our environment! Be sure to visit Worms for more "wormy" information and our worms game!

We haven't found a midi for the "Worms" song yet, but the tune is similar to the "Polly Wolly Doodle" midi below. But if you know the real tune already, we suggest you sing without starting the music.
