Herman the Worm

Lyrics

I was sittin’ on a fencepost slapping on my left knee, chewing on my bubble gum, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, playing with my yo-yo, do op, do op, do op do op, and watching the birds fly by. And then along came Herman the Worm and he was this big. (Hold fingers up to show about an inch)
I asked, “Herman, what happened?” and he said, “I swallowed one grape”.

I was sittin’ on a fencepost slapping on my left knee, chewing on my bubble gum, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, playing with my yo-yo, do op, do op, do op do op, and watching the birds fly by. And then along came Herman the Worm and he was this big. (Hold hands up to show about 5 inches)
I asked, “Herman, what happened?” and he said, “I swallowed two apples”.

I was sittin’ on a fencepost slapping on my left knee, chewing on my bubble gum, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, playing with my yo-yo, do op, do op, do op do op, and watching the birds fly by. And then along came Herman the Worm and he was this big. (Hold hands up to show about 12 inches)
I asked, “Herman, what happened?” and he said, “I swallowed three grapefruits”
.
I was sittin’ on a fencepost slapping on my left knee, chewing on my bubble gum, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, playing with my yo-yo, do op, do op, do op do op, and watching the birds fly by. And then along came Herman the Worm and he was this big. (Hold hands up to show about 3 feet)
I asked, “Herman, what happened?” and he said, “I swallowed four cantaloupes”.

I was sittin’ on a fencepost slapping on my left knee, chewing on my bubble gum, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, playing with my yo-yo, do op, do op, do op do op, and watching the birds fly by. And then along came Herman the Worm and he was this big. (Hold arms out as wide up to as you can.)
I asked, “Herman, what happened?” and he said, “I swallowed five watermelons”.

I was sittin’ on a fencepost slapping on my left knee, chewing on my bubble gum, chomp, chomp, chomp, chomp, playing with my yo-yo, do op, do op, do op do op, and watching the birds fly by. And then along came Herman the Worm and he was this big. (Hold fingers up to show about an inch)
I asked, “Herman, what happened?” and he said, “I burped!”.
