Top 5 Songs with Worm Lines

I have some downtime with the worms (not unusual, they are pretty well trained by now), so I thought I'd do a more fun post about worm references appearing in popular (ok, semi-popular!) songs.

I bet you think this would be a fast post, right? WRONG! There are a million worm references in songs!

Rock around your wigwam to the squirmy lyrics in my Top 5 Songs with Worm Lines:

5. " I present you, I present to you, I present you this crown of worms"
This song is a little heavy and intense, but I tried to be lenient.
I'm just hoping this is a LIVE crown of worms!
Megadeth- Crown of Worms, from Anthology: Set the World on Fire

4. "Worms don't dance."
The next line is funny, but you'll have to find it on your own...
Beth Orton- Worms, from The Comfort of Strangers

3. "...and he crawls like a worm. Crawls like a worm away from a bird."
I just wanna yell, "Crawl worm! Crawl!!!"
The Used- The Bird and the Worm, from Lies for the Liars

2. "The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinochle in your snout.
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,they eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes, crawls in your stomach and out our eyes."

Whoa! So gross, but probably the first song you thought of about worms!
Originally sung in World War I by soldiers, but the version below is by Mary Jo Maichack, from Howlarious Halloween

1. "...and the worms ate into his brain"
Again so gross, but my favorite worm reference in a song.
Pink Floyd- Hey You, from The Wall

Can you think of any others?
