A Conversation for Traditional Children's Songs - UK

the worm song

Post 1


One of my favorites was the worm song...
The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out
The ants play pinochle on your snout
Your guts turn into a greasy green

there are regional variations (type of insects etc.) throughout the midwest.

a version of that was recorded by the Pogues, MM.

It's on 'If I should fall from grace with god', if I remember correctly:

The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out
the ones that crawl in are lean and thin
the ones that crawl out are fat and stout
your eyes fall in and your teeth fall out
your brains come tumbling down your snout
be merry my friends be merry.
