The Worms Crawl In... [Sep. 14th, 2003|07:21 pm]

[Music |The Worms go in and the worms go out...]

Been doing a spot of research for Weird Cabaret...

I remembered a song that my father used to sing to me...he's a music teacher and has my sense of humour hehe...

The Worms Crawl In

Whenever you see a hearse go by,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
Remember, one day, you've got to die,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah

They wrap you up in a clean white sheet,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
And drop your box down thirteen feet.
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah

All goes well for about a week ...
And then the coffin begins to leak ...

Your eyes fall in and your teeth fall out ...
And maggots play ping-pong on your snout ...

Your fingers rot, and so do your toes ...
Your brains come tumbling down your nose ...

After a while your face turns green ...
And pus pours out like clotted-cream ...

The worms crawl in and the worms crawl out ...
They go in thin and they come out stout ...

So, whenever you see a hearse go by,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
Remember one day, you've got to die,
Oooh, ah, oooh, ah
How happy we shall be!

There's a different version here, with a midi...:

Might be interesting to use it in performance, since the theme for the next Weird Cabaret is 'Death'...

My mum taught that song to me! Though she couldn't remember all the verses. A friend and I used to put on shows at Christmas to our families (roping all the small brothers and sisters in LOL) and we did that song one year, with cowls over our heads - it went down a treat (but our families were a bit odd *grin*).

I'll have to take a listen to that midi, see if it's the tune I remember...ah, nostalgia!

I vaguely remember it as:

"The worms go in and the worms go out,
They go in thin and they come out fat,

Oh Woe! Woe! Woe! Woe!!"

But that was probably my dad just getting it wrong lol!

Cowls, eh?

*scribbling down ideas*
