Herman the Worm

This is a fast paced repeat after me chant. For full effect use lots of expression.
 
Sittin’ on the fence post,
Chewin’ my bubble gum,
(smack, smack, smack, smack)
Playin’ with my yo-yo,
Woo! Woo!
When along came Herman the Worm.
And he was this big.
(Show a small space between fingers.)
I said: “Herman, what happened?”

Have the children name things that have been eaten. For example, Herman could have eaten my sister, a tree, an elephant, etc. Repeat from the start several times, each time show a bigger space between your fingers or hands and having the children name something else he has eaten. For the last verse show a tiny space between fingers and end with:
 
I said: “Herman what happened?”
”I burped!”
