Herman the worm song lyrics

I was 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 swallowed a fly"

I was 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 little bit bigger worm) And I said: "Herman? What happened?" "I swallowed a turtle"

I was 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 bigger worm) And I said: "Herman? What happened?" "I swallowed a cat"

I was 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 bigger worm) And I said: "Herman? What happened?" "I swallowed a dog"

I was 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 really big worm) And I said: "Herman? What happened?" "I swallowed a dinosaur"

I was 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 for a tiny worm again) And I said: "Herman? What happened?" "I burped"
