Crouch Family Sing-a-long - "Doctor Worm" by They Might be Giants

Over the past year or two, my older kids (they're 11 and 9 now) have developed an appreciation for They Might be Giants, which is sort of an eclectic, funny alternative band that was formed in the early 80's by two guys named John. They sing a few songs you may have heard of before, including "Birdhouse in Your Soul", "Istanbul not Constantinople", and the theme song from the TV show "Malcolm in the Middle".


Today, when we were out and about, I realized that our four-year old daughter also really loves their music, especially our favorite song, "Doctor Worm". Unless you are a hardcore fan of their music, you probably haven't heard this one before. I have the CD in my car, and I think we listened to this song about 12 times in a row with everyone singing except for the baby.


This probably gives you some insight into what I find funny, and the fact that I really love to sing in the car....and loudly.


I've provided the lyrics below the YouTube video for easy reference if you want to pretend that you're in the Crouchmobile with us sometime. :)



They call me Doctor Worm.
Good morning. How are you? I'm Doctor Worm.
I'm interested in things.
I'm not a real doctor,
But I am a real worm;
I am an actual worm.
I live like a worm.

I like to play the drums.
I think I'm getting good,
But I can handle criticism.
I'll show you what I know,
And you can tell me if you think I'm getting better on the drums.
I'll leave the front un-locked 'cause I can't
Hear the doorbell

When I get into it I can't tell if you are
Watching me twirling the sticks.
When I give the signal, my friend
Rabbi Vole will pay the solo

Some day somebody else besides me will


Call me by my stage name, they will
Call me Dr Worm.
Good Morning how are you, I'm Dr Worm
I'm interested in things.
I'm not a real doctor,
But I am a real worm;
I am an actual worm.
I live like a worm.

I like to play the drums.
I think I'm getting good,
But I can handle criticism.
I'll show you what I know,
And you can tell me if you think I'm getting better on the drums.
I'm not a real doctor,
But they call me Dr. Worm.
