Song from my youth.
You sang it when you felt it (it's been true for everyone at least 900 times).

Long ones juicy ones
Fat ones greasy ones
Think I'll go eat worms.

Hmm...

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
Guess I'll go eat worms!
Long Ones
Short Ones
Skinny Ones
Fat Ones
Guess I'll go eat worms!

...Is how it went where I live

I knew there was more to this song, but I couldn't remember more than a few lines... Well, thanks to the wonder of the internet, now we can sing the whole thing. I've managed to hunt down four five different versions of this song, but sadly I have not been able to find the original source. Perhaps, like the worms themselves, it emerged fully-formed from the primordial ooze to brighten our lives. Okay now, sing loud, upbeat tempo, and if you miss a word, you gotta eat a worm!


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 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 III:
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 in your teeth
And the juice goes slurpin' (slurping noise) down your throat

Version IV:
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!"



Oops -- here's yet another variation:

Nobody likes me.
Everybody hates me.
I’m gonna eat some worms.

Chorus
Long slim slimy ones,
Short fat juicy ones,
Itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy worms.

First you get a bucket.
Then you get a shovel.
Look how they wiggle and squirm.

Chorus

First you pull the heads off.
Then you suck the guts out.
Oh, how they wiggle and squirm.

Chorus

Down goes the first one.
Down goes the second one.
Look how they wiggle and squirm.

Chorus

Up comes the first one.
Up comes the second one.
Oh, how they wiggle and squirm.

Chorus

Everybody likes me.
Nobody hates me.
Why did I eat those worms?

Ok, so here's how we sang it at summer camp.....

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
Guess I'll go eat worms
Big Fat Juicy Ones
Little bitty skinny ones
Golly how I love worms

Bite their heads off
Suck their guts out
Throw their skins away
Nobody knows how I can thrive
On worms three times a day

First ones easy
Second Ones squeezy
Third and fourth go down
Fifth gets stuck and
Sizth comes up
Golly how I love worms
