Lyrics

Inchworm, Inchworm,
Measuring the marigolds,
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are.
Inchworm, Inchworm,
Measuring the marigolds,
You and your arithmetic
Will probably go far.
Inchworm, Inchworm,
Measuring the marigolds,
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are.

The song is today a popular children's song and liked for its arithmetic-based chorus.
