Inchworm

Song lyrics to Inchworm sung by Danny Kaye in Hans Christian Andersen (1952)

music and lyrics by Frank Loesser

Inchworm, inchworm
Measuring the marigolds
Could it be, stop and see
How beautiful they are

(Chorus)
Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
Eight and eight are sixteen
Sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two

Inchworm, inchworm
Measuring the marigolds
You and your arithmetic
You’ll probably go far

(Repeat Chorus)

Inchworm, inchworm
Measuring the marigolds
Seems to me you’d stop and see
How beautiful they are
