Looking for the lyrics (many verses) to a child's nonsense song that starts:

Nobody loves me, Everybody hates me, Think I'll eat some worms.

Long ones, fat ones, skinny ones, juicy ones . . .

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I'm going to the garden to eat some worms
Big fat juicy ones, little bitty skinny ones,
And here's one just for you...

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one
I'm down in the garden eating worms
Big fat juicy ones, little bitty skinny ones,
And ones picked just for you...

Uh-up comes the first one, uh-up comes the second one...


and at this point in the song my mind goes conveniently blank and allows no furthur prodding of memory. I'm sure we sang several variants of the above words and I'm sure there are plenty of other verses or different regional incarnations of the same... Good luck with your further search. Hmmm. I DID have some weeding to do...Think I shall, in fact, go down to the garden. But don't worry: I'll warn the worms first.

Happy digging,

The ones that go in a long and thin
The ones that come out are short and stout

Title unknown but I always knew it as
I'm going down the garden to eat worms

Author unknown

This is a song I heard 40 years ago and have to sadly say its stuck
I really must get a life
Never wrote it down or had a recording so it really is just as I remember it

Nobody likes me everybody hates me
I'm going down the garden to eat worms
Long thin slimy ones slip down easily
Short fat fuzzy ones stick
Short fat fuzzy ones stick in your teeth
And the juice goes slurpppppppp
Bite of their heads and suck out the juice
And throw the skins away
nobody knows how I survive
On a hundred worms a day
Yum yum

Right I'm off for lunch

As sung in Boy Scout Camp and currently by neices and nephews:


Did you ever think when the hearse goes by
That you might be the next to die?

They wrap you up in a big white sheet
And bury you about six feet;

All go well for about a week
And then the casket begins to leak,

The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out
And the worms play pinochle on your snout,

And then you turn to a slimy green
And the pus runs out like whipping cream

Spoken: WHOOPS! I forgot my spoon!

He he! thanks, all!

We used the sing the second verse of "Nobody Likes Me" thus:

"The first one was easy, the second one was easy
The third one got caught in my throat *cough* *choke* ..."

And on the subject of earthworms, from an old BC comic book:

"Earthworm, earthworm in the ground
You see no sight, you hear no sound
You gnaw out tunnels down beneath
Without the benefit of teeth

Without no arm, no leg, no hand
We are behooved to understand
Just how, with attributes so few
They named a planet after you!"

The song where the 'worms go in thin and come out stout' I know as 'Where will you be in a hundred years from now' - sung to a refrain loosely based on the Death March

Where will you be in a hundred years from now
your teeth fall in
your eyes fall out
your brain comes trickling down your snout
oooh Ahhh
Where will you be in a hundred years from now

Where will you be in a hundred years from now
The worms go in
The worms come out
They go in thin and they come out stout
Oooh Ahhh
Where will you be in a hundred years from now

I learned this at school in the playground!!!!

Six stanzas may be found in _A Prairie Home Companion Song Book_ by Marcian & John Pankake (a good resource for this sort of thing -- there is a whole chapter called "Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts"). It has the happy ending

Nobody hates me, everybody likes me
Never shoulda eaten those worms
Long slim slimy ones, short fat juicy ones
Itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Up comes the first one, up comes the second one
Oh, how they wiggle and squirm
Long slim slimy ones, etc.

God, I love that song:

Nobody likes me, everybody hates, just 'cos I eat worms.(Br)
Long ones short ones, fat ones thin ones, worms that wiggle and squirm.

Bite their heads of suck* the juice out, through the skins away(Br)
That is how I live and thrive on worms 3 times a day. (Br)

Chorus
Worms, worms, worms, worms, worms, worms, worms, worms....
*Big sucking noise here.(Br)

We continued this as a round with half singing the chorus and half the verse.(BR)

I learned this at a Scout Camp in Danebridge on the Cheshire- Derbyshire border in the 60's, from another group of scouts from where I do not know. I am sure it is alive and well in Scouting. It travels well as others have pointed out. I later used at Camp Greylock, Beckett, Mass. in the Summer of 1970 and with Woodcraft Folk in Manchester and still offer it as part of an Infant worm collecting science activity in schools.(P)

I have been reliable informed that if a circle of people stand on damp grass and stamp, worms will come to the surface. Has anybody actualy witnessed this?

Just have to add to the "worms" song from Boy Scouts in re. Rapaire:

We sang the first line as :
"Now don't you laugh when a hearse goes by
'Cause you might be the next to die"

After "the worms play pinochle on your snout" I remember the verse:
"They eat your eyes, they eat your toes
They eat the boogers right out of your nose"

Then real loud: "PLEASE PASS THE GRAVY!!"

Especially effective sung full volume at the dinner table on meat loaf night.

Cheers, Bo

Another variation... learned at Girl Scout camp (Detroit area in the late 60s):

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Think I'll go eat some worms
Long worms, short worms, skinny worms, fat worms,
Itty bitty, teeny weeny woo-oo-oorms

First you bite the head off
Then you suck the blood out
Then you throw the skins awaa-aa-aay
Nobody knows how I survive on worms three times a daa-aa-aay.

Repeat first verse.

AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY

Nobody loves me
Everybody hates me
Going to the garden to eat worms
Big fat juicy ones
Tiny little squiggly ones
Watch them wriggle and squirm

Bite their heads off
Suck their juice out
Throw their skins away
I don't see how birds can live on
Worms three times a day

Nobody loves me
Everybody hates me
Going to the garden to eat worms
Long thin slimy ones
Short fat juicy ones
Gooey, gooey, gooey, gooey, worms

Long thin slimy ones slip down easily
Short fat juicy ones stick
Short fat juicy ones stick between your teeth
And the juice goes slurp, slurp, slurp

Goin' down the back to eat worms

Wriggle in me tummy type worms

I love the way they wiggle as they slide down me throat
So much nicer than a turtle or a goat
Oh, nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Goin' down the back to eat worms

Take your chicken
Take your steak
Buttered scones
And ice-cream cake
I'd much rather have worms...

Anybody found a sound file yet? If so email it to me at worms@faxcess.com

From a performance point of view
'....think I'll eat some worms'.
seems to work better than the other variations.

Bill Lockwood, one time Mayor of Middlewich, used to perform this song with great gusto.
But then, Middlewich does have a long and distinguished folk tradition, which stretches way back to...er...1990.

What I recall from the school-yards of Sydney is similarly gruesome to what Kelsey posted, I'm afraid...

Bite their heads off,
Suck their guts out,
Throw their skins away -
Nobody knows how well we live
On worms three times a day!

Great big gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated Moneky meat
lille birdies diry feet
Human eye balls soaked in bloody pots
Oops I forgot my spoon
I'll use a straw!

And then:

Never laugh when hearst goes by
as you might be the next to die
They wrap you up in a clean white sheet
and bury you down about 6 feet deep
and all goes well for about a week
but then the coffin begins to leak

The worms crawl in
The worms crawl out
they play pinocle upon your snout
They eat your eyes
they eat your nose
they eat the jelly between your toes

and then I go blank - something about guts and bread and eat when your dead!

The song is on here, titled "Nobody Likes Me" I remember it from when I was a child back in the early 90s.

Many variations have been done.

The version I know goes:

Nobody likes me,
Everybody hates me,
Just because I eat worms,
Big fat hairy ones,
Short skinny slimy 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.

Yes, that's a different song. The Mudcat discussion of it is here.

And you can find the sheet music to the song here!

My granny taught it to me when I was little. We use to sing it every time we went camping or took a long car ride. Here is what I remember of it.

"Nobody like me, everybody hates me,
sitting in the garden eating worms all day.
Big fat juicy ones, slip slop sloppy ones,
sitting in the garden eating worms all day.
First you pull the heads off, then you suck the Goo out,
then you throw the skins away.
Nobody likes me, everybody hayes me,
sitting in the garden eating worms all day"

this was one of the songs we used to sing in the late 1950s/early 60s in Singapore, in the busses (garries)going to and from school:

Nobody loves me, everybody hates me
I'm gonna eat some worms
Big fat juicy ones, loooong thin slimy ones
itsy-bitzy fuzzy-wuzzy worms!

First you bite their heads off
Then you suck their guts out
Oh how they wiggle and squirm
Big fat juicy ones, loooong thin slimy ones
itsy-bitzy fuzzy-wuzzy worms!

From my Girl Scout days:

Nobody likes me. Everybody hates me.
Might as well go eat worms.
Big long fat ones; little tiny skinny ones,
see how they wiggle and squirm!

First, you bite their heads off,
Then you suck the juice out,
Then you throw the skins away (unless you like them),
Nobody knows why I eat worms,
Three times a day!
