Hmm When i first heard this song it was from my brother, and it was an army marching song… And it was singing about eating worms.. later on I did a google for it then i realise the oringinal tune is called “Polly Wolly Doodle”, its a popular children song. According to Wikipedia,

“Polly Wolly Doodle” is a song first published in a Harvard student songbook in 1880.

It was also sang by the famous Shirley Temple in the movie “The Littlest Rebel” and her versions goes
Oh! I eat watermelon and I have for years,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
I like watermelon but it wets my ears,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Maybe grass tastes good to a moo cow’s mouth,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
But I like chicken ’cause I’m from the south,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Fare-thee well,
Fare-thee well,
Mister gloom be on your way,
If you think you’re gonna worry,
you can stop it in a huury,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day!

A woodpecker pecks till he gets his fill,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
But the woodpecker pays ’cause it’s on his bill,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Oh! I feed my pigs with molasses yam,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day;
And they should be sweeter than they really am,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day.

Fare-thee well,
Fare-thee well,
Mister gloom be on your way,
Tho’ you haven’t any money,
you can still be bright and sunny,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day!

This is the official version

Fare thee well, fare thee well,
fare thee well my fairy Fay
for I’m off to Lou’siana for to see my Susyanna

Actually, the real thing about this song, is that I am dedicating this to my good friends boss who thinks the entire country loves him because he used to head one of the smaller company in the local Telco. Once my friend tried to use his boss name to get “competitive data” and the customer replied (Filpping the pages of the book with the data that my friend needs, then closing the book suddenly he smiled) “I do not like your boss, he is so mean to me, why must i provide him this data? Let me be honest, I am the technical advisor  and i will make sure his response will not pass me” then he smiled.

This same boss like to live in his past splendor and keep telling people how he was the “CEO” of one of the company of the local telco. Till today, he still intimidate the telcos staff by calling the CEO of the telco to complain about every little thing that can happen.

I realise there are so many versions of this song, you can just do a google on “Nobody likes me everybody hates me” to read them. Here i will post my favourite Edited version

Title: Nobody likes me (I gonna eat some worm)
Lyrics: The Hesitant Prize Fighter

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
I’m gonna eat some worms
Big fat juicy ones, Eensie weensy squeensy ones,
See how they wiggle and squirm.

Chomp off their heads and squeeze out the juice
And throw their tails away
Nobody knows how I survive
On worms three times a day.

Ok… lets just get the tune from Shirley temple and lets start singing this
