Wally the Worm (childrens song)


Chorus:

Wally the worm, Wally the Worm,
He likes to slither, and he likes to squirm;
He likes to wiggle, and he likes to giggle,
There’s a lesson to learn, from Wally the Worm.

Verse one:

Now Wally can be careless, and often unaware,
Those birds are a’watchin’ him from up in the air;
And when they get hungry, and want something to eat,
They go for ole Wally, ‘cause he’s a real treat!

Chorus:

Verse two:

Now the fisherman is looking, for live fish bait,
Wally wants to slither, but he'd better wait;
Instead he crawls up, out of his hole,
Now he’s a’danglin’ from a hook, on a fishin’ pole.

Chorus:

Change up…

Verse three:

Now Wally the Worm, has a lesson to tell,
To all of us humans, so listen real well;
When you wiggle in this world, and squirm in sin,
Satan's out to get you, and do you in.

Verse four:

So be careful when you’re crawlin’, out in the world,
Whether you're an adult, or a boy or a girl;
Be always a’watchin’, from the land or the air,
Cause Satan's a 'hidin’, and lurkin’ out there.

Chorus:

Change up…

Verse five:

When you slither into trouble, like Wally the Worm,
Trust in God’s goodness, and from Him never squirm;
Then you wont be like Wally, some juicy fish bait,
And you can wiggle and giggle, on another day!

Chorus:

Repeat Chorus:

Repeat last line

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
