How to Sing Herman the Worm

Learn how to sing the classic kid's song Herman the Worm with this Howcast video.

One day I was sitting on my fence post. Hi friends, I’m Jamie. Thank you for joining me. We’re going to be doing one of my favorite hand plays called Herman the Worm. This is our little worm. This is our yo-yo that goes up-down, up-down, up-down, and every time we’re on our fence post, let’s make sure that our hands can go just like this. Shake them out and tap along with me. Ready?

One I was sitting on my fence post/chomping on my bubblegum/chomp-chomp-chomp
Playing with my yo-yo/up-down/up-down/up-down/when along came Herman the worm
And he was this big/and I said, "Herman how did you get that way?"

And he said, "I ate a fly."

"Oh, Herman."

So the next day I was sitting on my fence post/chomping on my bubblegum/chomp-chomp-chomp
Playing with my yo-yo/up-down/up-down/up-down/when along came Herman the worm.
And he was this big/and I said, "Herman, how you get that way?"

And he said, "I ate a frog."

"Oh, Herman."

So the next day I was sitting on my fence post/chomping on my bubblegum/chomp-chomp-chomp
Playing with my yo-yo/up-down/up-down/up-down/when along came Herman the worm.
And he was this big/and I said, "Herman, how you get that way?"

And he said, "I ate a cat."

"A cat? Oh, Herman."

So the next day I was sitting on my fence post/chomping on my bubblegum/chomp-chomp-chomp
Playing with my yo-yo/up-down/up-down/up-down/when along came Herman the worm.
And he was this big/and I said, "Herman, how you get that way?"

And he said, "I ate a grizzly bear."

"Oh, Herman."

So the next day I was sitting on my fence post/chomping on my bubblegum/chomp-chomp-chomp
Playing with my yo-yo/up-down/up-down/up-down/when along came Herman the worm.
And he was this big/and I said, "Herman, how you get that way?"

And he said, "I burped."

"Oh, Herman."
