Little Willy Wiggle

The day was bright and sunny, the sky was clear and blue,
and although it may sound funny, I found him in my shoe,

He was an itty bitty worm, so I named him Willy Wiggle,
He sure can squirm, and you should hear him giggle,

So I took little Willy, 'cause I couldn't leave him all alone,
and you may think I was silly, but I took him with me home,

Then he became my pal, and my bestest buddy,
and you should see him smile, when he goes and gets muddy,

So we went fishin' one day, and I use little Willy for bait,
and I'll just have to say.....It's one thing I really did hate,

I laid him on my hook....and I cast out my line,
and you should've seen his look....as he gave me a peace sign,

Then little Willy went down and he sunk all the way to the bottom,
all of a sudden little Willy jerked my line, that's when I knew he'd got'em,

So I started reeling Willy up!....and I was really reeling fast!
and I was really hoping......little Willy lungs would last,

Then up came Willy Wiggle.....the fish was right behind,
and Willy started to giggle...and he gave me another peace sign!

Willy told me that ol' fish came a swimmin' at him....
and that he thought there for a second....his chances were pretty slim...

He also told me ...and he didn't tell a lie...
he said he swung a left.....and punched the fish in its eye...

And I saw the fishes eye and it was surely black....
but I still don't know why....Willy didn't give it any slack!...

Then little Willy Wiggle threw the fish over his back..
and you should've heard him giggle as he gave the fish a smack..POW!!!

So we took the fish home and prepared it for dinner....
and I also have to say.....Willy sure is a good fish skinner...

Then we fried our fish......in a Big Hot Plate.........
and I could tell then....little Willy couldn't wait.....

We put the fried fish on our table...on a Great Big Dish!...
and it was the first time I'd ever.....seen a worm eat some fish.......

And little Willy Wiggle is still my bestest buddy........
and you should hear us giggle....when him and I get muddy.
