The Worm Song

If you’re looking for the worm song, you came to the right place! Some of us are familiar with the Halloween worm some with the eerie background music, while others can recite the lyrics to the childhood “I Eat Worms” song on cue. Below you will find the lyrics to the three most popular worm songs: The Worms Crawl In, Inch Worm Song, and I Eat Worms.

Did you ever think, as a hearse goes by,
That you might be the next to die?
They wrap you up in a big white sheet,
And bury you down about six feet deep

They put you in a big black box,
And cover you up with dirt and rocks,
And all goes well, for about a week,
And then the coffin begins to leak!

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.

A great big worm with rolling eyes,
Crawls in your stomach and out your eyes,
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.

You spread it on a slice of bread,
And that’s what worms eat when you’re dead.

Alternate / Additional Lines:

They wrap you up in a long white shirt
And cover you up with rocks and dirt

They put you in a long pine box
And cover you over with dirt and rocks

The worms that crawl in are lean and thin
The worms that crawl out are fat and stout

Your eyes fall in and your hair falls out
Your brains come pouring out your snout

They use your bones as telephones
and call you up but you’re no longer at home

Your eyes pop out, your teeth decay
and that’s the end of a peaceful day

You turn the color of sickening green
And pus comes out like butter and cream
You wipe it up with a piece of bread
And that’s what you eat when you are dead

They eat your eyes, they eat your nose
They eat the jelly between your toes

Your stomach turns a mossy green
And pus comes out like fresh whipped cream
You wipe it up with a piece of bread
And that’s what you eat when you are dead

Inch Worm Song

Five-inch worms inching up a tree (Wiggle five fingers)
Five insects invited them to see (Hold up other hand)
An Iguana inside the tree (Place one hand inside the other)
Use your imagination and you will see (Point finger to head)
All ten having fun in a tree (Wiggle all ten fingers)

I Eat Worms Song

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
Just because I eat worms

Short fat hairy ones
Long tall skinny ones
See how the little ones squirm

Bite all their heads off
Suck all the juice out
Throw the empty skins away

Nobody Likes me
Everybody hates me
Cos I eat worms all day

Nobody likes us
Everybody hates us
Just because we eat worms

Short fat hairy ones
Long tall skinny ones
See how the little ones squirm

Bite all their heads off
Suck all the juice out
Throw the empty skins away

Nobody Likes us
Everybody hates us
Cos we eat worms all day
