The Lyrics

Well I'm glad you've come
To Washington Park
I've been busy, doing digging, look and see
Now please, don't be afraid
Just try to be brave
Meet my worm named Stan, please trust me

He's crawlin', crawlin'
Stan's slimey! Ewww, Stan's slimey
Oh Stan--Stan's slimey! Stan's slimey! Stan's slimey

He may not be much to look on
But we have a ball
Just pretending to catch fish, with much glee
Though he tries, many times, to crawl in my ear
Just keep him in your hand, just trust me

He's squirmin', squirmin'!
Stan's slimey, ewwww, Stan's slimey!
Wow man! Stan's slimey, Stan's slimey, Stan's slimey...

(chorus of girls gently squealing with disgust)

Quiv'ring, shiv'ring
Stan's slimey! Stan's slimey! Stan's slimey!

Look now he's digging a new tunnel
Old Stan's slimey...

The visual you created of chasing girls with a worm in your hand was very entertaining! Good job with this.

I think this is the first song that I've ever read about somebody's pet worm. That being said, EXTREMELY original idea, and great follow through.

"A Simple Plan", "Stand By Be" take your time before you submit your work buddy.

Don't know why I'm thinking about this, but Oscar The Grouch had a worm.

This old pre-viagra joke will tell my age, but what the heck: Little Eric was playing on the lawn when his gramps came along and asked what he was doing. "Digging up worms", said Erik. "I'll give you ten bucks if you can put them back in the whole", said gramps. Eric was a clever kid so he went after a can of hairspray, drenched a worm in it until it was all stiff and pushed it back down, and got his ten bucks. The next day he got another ten bucks. "But gramps, you've alrady paid me", said Eric. "I know", said Gramps, "but these ten bucks are from grandma!"

Ann: Oscar still has Slimey--who now talks--and regularly reads bedtime stories to him. No, really!
Peter: There's this little piece of drama I've heard on a Sharon Lois & Bram record...
Man: Where you goin' little boy?
Boy (muffled): Fishin'!
Man: What have you got in your mouth little boy?
Boy (muffled): Worms!

Song title, ably pointed out by Matthias above, has now been fixed. :)

Eeeewy Gooey was a worm; a mighty worm was he...oh never mind. :-)

Like the idea a lot, and your comment/vote following on this song show the type of fan base you've built up over time, congrats on that too (mine from earlier this week didn't measure up to yours or Mattys in comment totals) Don't think I would have ever come up with that title to this song--very unique.

You wiggled out a pretty good idea, here..

Sir Agree, this charmer reminded me of watching worms & salamanders after a NorCAL rain ! The only fishing that was near ,was the tadpole kind in the swamp(Laguna Salada) in the golf course.

With all of the parodies you've written this month you went with the shortest one. Sure it's a good idea, but songs have have a certain oomphf to make them SOTM worthy. Sorry Agrimorfee, but even though I loved this one for the Karaoke Revolutionized round it's far too short to use in a SOTM.
EmiLoca - September 18, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I totally thought this whole parody was a sexual innuendo about a flasher in Washington Park ("we have a ball", "just keep him in your hand"). Whether that was your intention or not. That said, I respectfully disagree with Matthias and assert that size doesn't matter - this one's totally a contender. ;-)

Emi: ewwww! :D (Thanks!)

SOTM = Slime Of The Month? I like the weirdness of this one but I think I'm with Matthias on it being too short, then again those ten minute songs we've seen some of this year are probably too long, so all in all it still might add up to another FUCA for you. ;-)

I don't know why I thought of this since I saw this ages ago in Germany. There is a town called Worms. I saw the ausfahrt (exit) sign off the autobahn. The town's name is actually pronounced "verms". Yeah and then there was the time when I was a kid and decided to scare a group of girls with a night crawler. All but one ran off screaming. The one who remained was a tom boy. I told her she was just acting tough and I'd bet she wouldn't hold it. She took it from me, stretched it out like a rubber band and slimed me right in the face when she let the far end go. I should have seen that coming. The parody is simple but quite effective. Wormacious!

Agri, I adored this song. I adored it so much that I am going to echo Bill Murray in Ghostbusters, slimed me. I love using ghostbusters quotes. And speaking of Ghostbusters, you know that Librarian ghost from the movie? A scarier version of that was used in the movie Fright Night.

(SOTM) Grade-A Agrimorfee classic right here. Great idea, loved the chorus sub - a recording of this would just be icing on the worm-covered cake. 555 for you (and Stan)!

(SOTM) On this one I'll keep it simple like TOS and say "See Above" :)
Jeff Reuben - September 29, 2008 - Report this comment
See above, good to read again!

You could always follow up with an "On top of ol' Slimey" parody :-) Fun stuff, Ag (if a bit odd)

Once again Agri, you slimed me. You slimed me real good. 555.
