Gross Out!

Let’s face it, kids often find gross things cool. St. Louis Public Library has two great non-fiction series—The Amazingly Gross Human Body and Gross Body Science—where readers will find all sorts of gruesome facts about the hard-working human body. For fun and perplexing conversation starters, you can also check out Would You Rather? Gross Out—one in a series that poses all sort of outrageous questions such as “Would you rather have an Adam’s apple the size of a watermelon or have feet as long as you are tall?”

It wouldn’t be a party without the following revolting songs. These are favorites of mine from childhood and can be found all over youtube.com if you need the tune. These are truly gross and delightful! (Lines in italics are spoken. You can leave out the 3rd and 4th verses  of the bumblebee song to make a less disgusting version.)

  • I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee
  • (cup hands as if holding a bee)
  • Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
  • I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee
  • Ouch! It stung me!
  • I’m squishing up a baby bumblebee
  • (mash hands together)
  • Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
  • I’m squishing up a baby bumblebee
  • Ew! What a mess! I’m lickin’ up baby bumblebee
  • (pretend to lick hands)
  • Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
  • I’m lickin’ up a baby bumblebee
  • Ick! I feel sick! I’m pukin’ up a baby bumblebee
  • (hold stomach and pretend to heave)
  • Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
  • I’m pukin’ up a baby bumblebee
  • Yuck! It’s everywhere!
  • I’m wipin’ up a baby bumblebee
  • (make mopping motions, or if omitting previous verses, wipe hands on thighs)
  • Won’t my mommy be so proud of me
  • I’m wipin’ up a baby bumblebee
  • Now my mommy won’t be mad at me!

 

  • Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
  • Mutilated monkey meat
  • Little dirty birdy feet
  • French fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood
  • And me without a spoon!
  • But I got a straw…

 

  • Nobody loves me
  • Everybody hates me
  • Guess I’ll go eat worms
  • Long, thin, slimy ones
  • Fat, short, juicy ones
  • Itsy bitsy fuzzy wuzzy worms!
