Herman the Worm



Herman The Worm
(chorus)
Sitting on my fence post chewing my bubblegum (chewing sound 4x)
Playing with my yo-yo
Weeeyooo Weeeyooo
When along came Herman the Worm
and he was this big (with fingers show an inch)

And I said, "Herman, What happened?"
And he said, "I ate my father"
And I said, "Herman you're a bad bad worm"
And the very next day

(repeat chorus)
(with fingers show 4 inches)
And I said "Herman What happened?"
And he said, "I ate my mother"
And I said, "You're a bad bad worm"
And the very next day

(repeat chorus)
(with hands show a foot)
And I said "Herman What happened?"
And he said, "I ate my brother"
And I said, " Herman, you're a bad bad worm"

(repeat chorus)
(with hands show completely outstretched)
And I said, "Herman What happened?"
And he said, "I ate my sister"
Andi I said, " Herman you're a bad bad worm"

(repeat chorus)
(with fingers show a 1/4 of an inch)
And I said, "Herman, What happened?"
And he said, " I BURPED!"

Click me baby! for Herman the Worm. Want me to go paste it in here?

Herman the Worm

Sittin' on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum
(chew, chew, chew, chew)
Playin' with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!
When along came Herman the worm
And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a tiny worm)
And I said: "Herman? What happened?"
"I ate my Mother."

(repeat verse, with worm action getting larger and larger for each of the following lines:)

"I ate my Father."
"I ate my Brother."
"I ate my Sister."
"I ate my Dog."

(repeat verse one last time, with a tiny worm action for:)

"I burped."

Is this related to the story of Herman the worn wherein is sung the song, "I'm Herman the worm(in) and I love my squirmin'..." etc?

-J, stealing her mother's cookie again.

It took me forever to find these lyrics of Herman the Worm. This is that greatest song ever.

HERMAN THE WORM

Herman was squirming
His way back to his home.
His girlfriend named Patti
Had left him all alone.
She turned into a butterfly
And flew away into the sky.

CHORUS: Poor Herman the worm!
All of his hearts were broken,
But he never gave up on love.

Well, Herman, that sad soul,
He had a tragic life.
His father was fish bait.
The early bird took his wife.
His grandma wasn't very sly.
She ended in an apple pie. REPEAT CHORUS

Now Herman found him
Another love so strong.
They squirmed in the blue grass
Till a lawnmower came along.
That couple never had a clue,
And breaking up is hard to do. REPEAT CHORUS

J/Cami, that's from storyteller Jay O'Callahan's "Herman and Marguerite".

This is a great song for camps. Here are the chords I use (the lyrics I know are just slightly different):

Capo 2

chorus: C (Her-) G (Worm) Am (All) Em (bro-)
F (nev-) G (up) C (love) [to G first time through and repeat]

Verses: C (Her-) G (squirm-) C (way) G (home)
C (girl-) G (Sal-) F (left) G (-lone)
F (turned) G (-fly)
F (flew) G (sky)

I wish I knew the writer of this song so I could credit him/her. The camp I was working at picked the song up at a camping conference in Chicago, and I think the writer was there teaching it...but I hadn't made it to the conference that year (1999 maybe?). When we would perform it with the kids, we'd throw in a little drama to the final chorus, pausing after the last 'up' and shouting 'No!' and repeating 'he never gave up (NO!)' a couple times. I'm guessing even that came from the conference and the original writer. Great fun.
