Well I’m coming to terms with my qualms and concerns
‘bout the lack in my food of all bugs and all germs
It’s too antiseptic it makes me dyspeptic and so I’ve decided to live on a
Diet of worms

Hey, it looks like spaghetti (except that it squirms)
And it’s chock full of protein, my doctor affirms that the
Key to long life
#1 avoid strife
#2 use a fork and a knife on a
Diet of worms

Diet of worms, diet of worms, diet of worms, diet of worms

I pray your indulgence on this bowl of effulgence
Martin Luther himself would have sat for a bowlful
Eaten all he could want if it weren’t for that pontiff
Mr. Luther stood proud and claimed faith in the diet of worms

Diet of worms, diet of worms, diet of worms, diet of worms

Some folks just don’t buy it
They attempt to deny it
But if they’d just try it
They might like this diet
You just wash it and dry it makes a crusty good pie it tastes great, you can deep fat fry it
and you’ll still be on your diet
Your diet of worms

A respected medical journal confirms
This diet helped students score high on midterms
Health food stores served it first, claimed it was co-opted
When it was adopted by top U.S. firms
Can it make you sleep better or stop your bedwetting?
Well it did cure forgetting in old pachyderms
As for hair growth or loss, the jury’s still out
But it gave frosted highlights to women with perms
When they all ate their worms

Diet of worms, diet of worms, diet of worms, diet of worms

Yes, worms live in the dirt, when you bite down, they hurt, when they’re sauteed they squirt, they can’t wear a tee shirt, they’re just slow, not inert, while they do make good main courses they’re not so great for dessert
