"Guess I'll Go Eat Worms" is also called "Nobody Likes Me, Everybody Hates Me".

Notes

Here's another version:

Nobody likes me,
Everybody hates me!
Guess I'll go eat 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,
Oh 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,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

(Chorus)

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

Rebecca Rush wrote, "I learned it like this..."

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
Guess I'll go eat worms

Big fat juicy ones
Little tiny squishy ones
Yummy yummy ooey gooey worms

First one was easy
Second one was greasy
Third and fourth went down.....gulp
Fifth got stuck
Sixth came up
Oh how I hate worms!

Kathie Rush wrote, "Nobody likes me song - the way I learned it..."

Nobody likes me, Everybody hates me,
Guess I go eat worms.
Long, slim and slimy ones,
Big, fat juicy ones,
The kind that wiggle and squirm.
Bite their heads off, suck their guts out,
Throw their skins away.
Nobody knows how man can survive on
worms three times a day!

Donated by:
Kathie Rush from Georgia
Learned it in camp 40 years ago.

No body likes me,
Everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms.

Long, slim, slimey ones,
Big fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy, wuzzy worms.

First you bite the head off,
Then you suck the juice out,
Then you throw the rest away.

Long, slim, slimey ones,
Big, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy, wuzzy worms.

Jerry Krantman sent his version:

Nobody likes me. Everybody hates me.
Guess I'll go eat worms.
Big, fat juicy ones, little bitty skinny ones.
See how they wiggle and squirm.

Bite their heads off, suck the juice out,
Throw the skins away.
I don't see how birds can thrive on worms three times a day.

Susan Alfred sent her version:

Worm song version I learned as a kid...

Nobody likes me everybody hates me, guess I'll eat some worms.
Big ones, fat ones, long ones, skinny ones, you can watch them squirm.

Bite their heads off, suck their juice out, throw their skins away
Wish I could have them 3 times a day

In between meals too...

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I think I'll eat some worms
big fat juicy ones, long skinny slimy ones,
itsy bitsy fuzzy worms, yum yum!

First you bite the head off, then you suck the guts out,
then you throw the rest away,
big fat juicy ones, long skinny slimy ones,
itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy worms, yum yum!

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,
down goes the third little worm,
big fat juicy ones, long skinny slimy ones
itsy bitsy fuzzy worms, yum yum!

Up comes the third one, up comes the second one,
up comes the first little worm
big fat juicy ones, long skinny slimy ones
itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy worms, yum yum!

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat worms!
Big fat juicy ones
Eensie weensy squeensy ones
See how they wiggle and squirm!

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!

I bite off the heads, and suck out the juice
And throw the skins away!
Nobody knows how fat I grow
On worms three times a day!

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat worms!
Big fat juicy ones
Eensie weensy squeensy ones
See how they wiggle and squirm!

And here's the 2nd version:

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
going down the path to eat worms
Big, fat, juicy ones,
little, bitty, ooky ones,
Worms that wiggle & squirm
First one's greasy goes down easy
2nd one sticks to my tongue
3rd one rusts
4th one busts
5th one began to run.

Going down the path (or garden in some versions) to eat worms."

Ava and Madeline sent the version they know (you can hear it in the mp3 below):

Nobody likes me
Everyone hates me
Guess I'll go eat worms
Cheesy, wheezy, eensy
Little tiny bitty ones
Big fat wiggly worms
Down goes the first one
The second one gets stuck
The last goes down Mmmmm
Nobody likes me
Everyone hates me
Guess I'll go eat worms
Cheesy, wheezy, eensy
Little tiny bitty ones
Big fat wiggly worms.

"Here's my childhood version that my mom sang to me..."

Nobody loves me,
everybody hates me,
I'm gonna eat a worm!
Great big fat ones,
little bitty skinny ones,
ones that wiggle and squirm!

First ones greasy,
went down easy,
second one stuck to my tongue,
third one got all caught in my throat,
and the fourth one tried to run!

First you bite off the heads,
then suck out the guts
and throw the skins away,
Nobody knows what us kids eat
but worms three times a day!
And in between meals too!

Here's my version from my childhood:

Nobody likes me,
Everybody hates me,
Going down the garden to eat worms

Long, thin slimy ones
Short, fat fuzzy ones
fuzzy wuzzy worms

The long, thin slimy ones slip down easy
But the short fat fuzzy ones stick, eugh!
The short, fat fuzzy ones stick in your teeth
and the juice goes sch sch sch.

So you bite off the heads and suck out the juice
and throw the skins awaaaay
Nobody knows how I survive
On 100 worms a daa-ay.
