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


Author Notes
Our church had an annual fishing Saturday, on the Saturday before Father's day. I wrote this little song after one of those events.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
