Lyrics

Inchworm, Inchworm,
Measuring the marigolds,
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are.
Inchworm, Inchworm,
Measuring the marigolds,
You and your arithmetic
Will probably go far.
Inchworm, Inchworm,
Measuring the marigolds,
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are.

The song is today a popular children's song and liked for its arithmetic-based chorus. A children's chorus sings the song in the film using the "arithmetic" version while sitting inside a small classroom. Hans Christian Andersen is outside listening to the singing while looking at an inchworm crawling on a flower.

Eight and eight is sixteen
Sixteen and sixteen is thirty-two.
