Nobody Likes Me (Guess I'll Go Eat Worms)

Information About Nobody Likes Me (Guess I'll Go Eat Worms)

Nobody Likes Me is the perfect song for a child that likes things that are gross like worms or bugs. The origins of "Nobody Likes me (Guess I'll Go Eat Worms)" are unknown. It was first recorded by British band, The Boys. in 1977. It was also mentioned in print by Charles Scriner's and Son Copyright 1906. There are a variety of different versions and some of them are going to be more gross than the other ones. The first version of this song talks about eating a variety of different worms like long, thin, slimy ones, and short, fat, juicy ones. Even the smaller worms are going to wiggle and squirm when they go down. Then more than likely, they are going to come back up once you have ate them.

The second version of Nobody Likes Me is talking about eating long ones, short ones, fat ones, and thin ones. The words of the song is biting off the heads of the words and sucking out the juice of the worms. The child will throw away the skins of the worms as they eat three worms a day. The third version talks about eating fat juicy and small worms. The child will chomp off the heads of the worms and squeeze out any of the juice that the worms have. The tails will be thrown away as they eat three worms a day.

The fourth version of Nobody Likes Me is talking about going to garden where the child is going to be able to find the most worms. The worms are going to slip down their throat very easily since all of the juice that the worms are going to have but they are going to stick to the child's teeth. The fifth version of this song is eating the fat juicy ones and slimy skinny ones. The child is going to hope that the worms don't have germs.

Fun Fact: The Army Field Manual and the Boy Scout Handbook both outline eating worms in the wild to survive. To eat them safely you must soak them in clean water so that they purge themselves of potentially harmful germs and soil. They can then be eaten raw or smashed into a jelly to be spread on bread.

The 2006 movie "How To Eat Fried Worms" is this song taken to the extreme, but it is absent from the soundtrack.

An activity to make singing this song more fun involves handing out gummy worms to the kids so that they can bite into them when the song is over. Just don't let them throw them at each other!

Although the tone of the song is very negative there are also positive versions of the classic song to be found on BusSongs.

It may be surprising, but this isn't the only song on the site about worms. We also have Herman the Worm, Glow Little Glow Worm, The Littlest Worm and our personal favorite There's A Worm At The Bottom Of My Garden.

Fans of Nobody Likes Me will probably also like Great Green Gobs and The Worms Crawl In, The Worms Crawl Out.

Short and Sweet Version!

Just like Gopher Guts, there are many versions of this song.
Some of the versions we have heard of are:.

The worms might have germs in this version

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
think I'll go eat worms. .
big fat juicy ones, little slimy skinny ones,
hope they don't have germs!

Now we have Wriggling Worms

Nobody loves me, everybody hates me
Think I'll go and eat worms
Long ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones
See how they wriggle 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
Ohh. .nobody loves me.

2 more verses you can sing to

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

Chomp off their heads and squeeze out the juice
And throw their tails away
Nobody knows how I survive
On worms three times a day.

Enjoy the Gooey worms

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I'm goin' down the garden to eat worms
Long thin slimy ones, short fat fuzzy ones
Ooey gooey, ooey gooey worms.

Long thin slimy ones slip down easily
Short fat fuzzy ones don't
Short fat fuzzy ones stick to your teeth
And the juice goes slurpin' (slurping noise) down your throat.

Do you want fuzzy worms?

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms,
Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

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.

A really disgusting version

Nobody loves me everybody hates me.
Think I'll eat some worms,
Long ones, short ones,
Little fat fussy ones,
Its bitsy teeny weeny worms.

First you bit their heads off,
Then you suck their guts out,
See how they wiggle and they squirm, long ones,
Short ones,little fat fussy ones,
Itsy bitsy teeny weeny worms.

The long thin slimy ones slip down easly,
The short fat fussy ones stick.
But when the short fat fussy ones stick to your teeth,
All the juice goes SSSLLLLLLLLUURRRRRRPPPPPPPPPPPP. .

Classic gruesome!

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
I think I'll eat some worms!
Short fat squishy ones,
Long thin slimy ones,
Chewy, Gooey, Icky, Ooey Worms!

From memories of a Summer Camp (1975-6)

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Guess I'll eat some worms!
Long slim slimy worms,
Short, fat juicy ones,
Itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy ones,.

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,
Oh how they squiggle and squirm!
Long slim slimy worms,
Short, fat juicy worms,
itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy ones,.

Everybody likes me, nobody hates me
Why did I eat those worms?!!
Long slim slimy worms,
Short, fat juicy worms,
Itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy ones.

Up comes the first one, up comes the second one,
See how they wiggle and squirm!
Long slim, slimy worms,
Short, fat juicy worms,
Itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy ones.

A somewhat nasty version

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

The long thin slimy ones slip down easily,
The short fat fuzzy one stick.
When the sort fat fuzzy ones stick to your teeth their blood goes oohie oohie ick.

So, bite off their heads and spit out the tails and throw the skins away.
Nobody knows how I can survive on 100 worms a day.

Doing No Harm Version

Standing on a corner, not doing any harm.
Along came a policeman and took me by the arm.
He took me to a corner and rang a little bell.
Along came a police car and took me to a cell.
I woke up the next morning and looked upon the wall.
The mosquitoes and the bed bugs were having a game of ball.
The score was six to nothing.
The bed bugs were ahead.
The mosquitoes hit a home run and knocked me out of bed.
Nobody likes me. Everybody hates me.
Guess I'll go eat worms.
Big fat juicy ones, little bitty squirmy ones.
Any kind of worms.
First you bite the heads off, then you suck the guts out.
Ooooo how they wiggle and squirm.
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me.
Guess I'll go eat worms.

Another fan's version

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Think I'll eat some worms.
Big ones fat ones thin ones skinny ones,
Think I'll eat some worms.

I'll rip off their heads,
and suck out the guts,
and throw the skins away.

You'd be surprised at how many worms
I could eat five times a day!

Longer rhyming version

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
I'm gonna eat some worms.

Big worms
Small worms
Ooowie ooowie gooey worms
I'm gonna eat some worms.

1st ones greasy slides down easy
2nd on sticks to my tongue.

3rd ones rusted
4th ones busted
5th ones on the run.

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
I'm gonna eat some worms.

I love this song! I used to sing it to my mom all the time and it used to gross her out. I'm glad there are the different versions in here because I had forgotten most of the lyrics.

I just adore this song! It is very imaginative and I LOVE IT! I was trying to figure out the tune on my violin, but I couldn't quite get the "i'll go eat some worms" part. Oh well, I'll figure it out.

Today I was just singing the first verse of the song, and my older brother asked me what I was singing and I told him it was this song, but I did not know the rest of the song, So I looked it up and found this website, but I learned this song in kindergarden back in 1978, and it brought back a flood of memories!

Here I am at Camp Harmony in Malibu where they have 300 children from disadvantaged backgrounds. We just finished dinner where we had chocolate pudding with "worms" (the good kind) in them. I started singing the worm song to someone next to me and they thought it would be great to sing it to all 300 kids. So I did, and they all joined in and loved it. Thanks for providing all the different versions on this web site.

Cialis was developed by Icos, a relatively dvd stable or they usually return? Tramadol for box set dvds opiate withdrawl. Often when you buy tramadol cheap you can even choose to have it shipped to you overnight and have it the dvd very next day.

The version I remember (probably from Dr. Demento's radio show) had SOMETHING extra in the third line: "Nobody likes me/Everybody hates me/I'm going DOWN THE BANK to eat worms." I assumed it meant a creek bank, made sense, worms near the water and all. And the Dr. Demento playlist entry notes that the title has been incorrectly thought to be 'I'm Going Down The Back To Eat Worms.' Maybe 'Out back to eat worms' makes more sense. But other than a couple references to 'the garden' in the versions listed on THIS site (bussongs), every version I've found just says 'Guess I'll go eat worms.' Why does this BOTHER ME SO MUCH?
