Here’s some advice for all you worms:

     Make sure you all sleep late.

The early bird breakfasts on worms.

      Oh what a heartless fate!


If you’re a worm don’t view the world

    But stay deep in the ground.

The robin's ears are very sharp.

     He hears your every sound.


All you who stay well out of sight

    Are safe and quite secure –

For one quick peep out at this world

    And you’ll be grabbed for sure!!


So, take advice, you wriggly worms;

      Don't risk a robin's tummy,

For 'tis well known that fresh-dug worms

      To him are rather yummy!
