Information About There's A Worm At The Bottom Of My Garden

A traditional children's song, There's A Worm At the Bottom of My Garden can be sung individually or in a group and you can encourage children to act out some of the lyrics by wiggling at the appropriate times.

Worms do wiggle at the bottom of gardens, and not only at the bottom, but at the top and in the middle. Why do worms wiggle? Wiggling worms aerate ( create air in the dirt behind their wiggling) the soil, and they eat organic matter ( some things that grow, like bits of leaves and grass), and after they eat, they leave behind "castings" which is a special kind of fertilizer that helps plants in the garden grow.

Most worms that wiggle through our gardens are called earthworms. Some people make earthworm farms. and grow worms, which they sell to gardeners and fisherman, because many fish like to eat earthworms, so they are good bait. It can be a fun hobby, and it is pretty easy to raise the earthworms, because they will happily eat scraps of vegetables you have leftover from your dinner, and even bits of paper and pizza boxes!

This one has an extra verse

There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo
There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And all that he can do
Is wiggle all night
And wiggle all day
Whatever else the people do say
There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo

There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo
There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And all that he can do
Is wiggle all night
And wiggle all day
Whatever else the people do say
There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo

Another version but only 1 verse


There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden and his name is “Wiggly Woo”
There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden and his name is “Wiggly Woo”
He wiggles all night, he wiggles all day
The people round here, they do say
There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden and his name is “Wiggly Woo”

The worms remind me of tax collcetors, so it's great they stay at the bottom of the garden far far away. Since I moved to Barbados there are no more worms so I missed singing this song. It's so ace, maybe I will have to start paying taxes again
