about

Sometimes a song is so great, you don't want to deviate too much from the original version when covering it. Such is the case with "Doctor Worm", a cover I did for the They Might Be Giants tribute album "They - Pay Tribute" (available only via the Kickstarter for the album: www.kickstarter.com/projects/adamrivera/they-pay-tribute ). Also -- sometimes you want to keep the instrumental close to the original, so you have it for a parody later down the line (as is the case with my song "Doctor Who", available here: insaneian.bandcamp.com/track/doctor-who ). Multi-purpose!

lyrics

They 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'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 stick.
When I give the signal, my friend
Rabbi vole will play 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.
