From the recording Count. Me. In.
This award-winning song is a song for adults about how to reduce food waste to lower their carbon footprint, cleverly disguised as a children’s song.
I Like Worms
G C/G C/G
The hardest working creature; that you’ll ever meet
Is the one making tunnels; under your feet.
His task is mighty despite his size.
D C G C/G
He’s a decomposer in disguise. I like worms.
There’s a mystery underground. Where colonies toil.
They eat anything rotten. And it comes out soil.
They don’t sting or make a sound.
They’ve no eyes for you till your in the ground. I like worms.
D C G
Worms make the world go round.
D C D G. C/G
They make me want to kiss the ground. I like worms.
So I brought them in my kitchen. And that’s no lie.
All my food scraps go in their bin, where that stuff dies.
In the landfill it would stink I fear,
And add methane to the atmosphere. I like worms.
In my bin those veggie scraps; just disappear.
I raise the lid on my compost; and feel like a pioneer.
Coffee grounds, broccoli, leaves and leeks,
But it smells like a forest and creek. I like worms.
I like worms.
