Herman the Worm

Sittin' on my fencepost, cheweing my bubblegum 
(chew, chew, chew, chew) 
Playin' with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo! 
When along came Herman the worm 
And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a tiny worm) 
And I said: "Herman? What happened?" 
"I ate my Mother." 

(repeat verse, with worm action getting larger and larger for
each of the following lines:) 

"I ate my Father." 
"I ate my Brother." 
"I ate my Sister." 
"I ate my Dog." 

(repeat verse one last time, with a tiny worm action for:) 
"I burped."
