Song - the Woodworm Song

What about that ticking sound my bed is making?
Dear me, gracious, could that be a woodworm?
I know for sure as three of the four bed legs are breaking
Dear me, gracious, that must be a woodworm!

It's even looking out of its hole grinning at me
My bed's not the right place for such a woodworm to be
So come on, come on, shoo, into the fish bait jar with you!

You're gonna be a fish bait
Nasty wormy
Just wait and see
A tasty fish you'll catch for me

Sitting down for pie I hear my table is cracking
Dear me, gracious, not another woodworm!
It seems they choose me burrow for some serious attacking
Dear me, gracious, yet another woodworm

My furniture is gone, but now my bait jar is full
Another one I pick from what is left of my stool
So come on, come on, shoo, into the fish bait jar with you!

You're gonna be a fish bait
Nasty wormy
Just wait and see
A tasty fish you'll catch for me

Later at the shore I throw the hook with the worm in
'Dear me, gracious!' cries the drowning woodworm
My bait jar is alive now, full of hysteric squirming
'Dear me, gracious!' cry the other woodworms

When I retrieve the line I can't believe what I see
I'm bursting into tears while it is grinning with glee
The worm with its sharp teeth has caught a driftwood plank for me!
