More Worms Crawling in and Out


We’ve had many, many comments on our post about the song The Worms Crawl In, The Worms Crawl Out.  Here’s a new one by Kai Patsches (U.S.), that I found particularly fun and interesting…

When I was younger, every time we would pass a graveyard in the car we had to put one foot in the air, one arm in the air, stick your tongue out, and cross your eyes. Shortly after my mum would always sing;

Have you ever seen a hearse go by,
Thinking that you’ll be the next to die,
They put you in a wooden box,
Cover you up with dirt and rocks,
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
In your nose and out your mouth,
They eat your guts like sauerkraut. 

We would usually repeat the song a few times.

Thanks Kai!

Given that Halloween is around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to mention this great, ghoulish song once again.

PS Above is a photo I took recently on one of my family hikes… man were those worms long and creepy!
