Somewhere in the recesses of my mind I hear a few lines,

The worms crawled, the worms crawled out
They played Pinochle on her snout.

This is probably of US origin, as Pinochle is a card game I've only ever heard of in America.
Of course it may be lines from a different song altogether, although the wording is similar. Somebody, I have forgotten who, used to replace the last line with just the word 'AYE' shouted out in a loud voice.
