I remember an old movie that had the song "the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out" and I remember a little girl in it that had a doll and there was something hidden in it. It was a scary movie, I think. Anyone remember the name of it?

The movie is "Picture Mommy Dead" with Zsa Zsa Gabor. Zsa Zsa was dead, and the little girl had her necklace hidden in a doll.

The movie indeed was "PICTURE MOMMY DEAD" starring Zsa Zsa Gabor as the mommy, who is strangled by her husband played by Don Ameche. In order to cover up her father's horrendous act, the daughter Susan, played by Susan Shelley, sets the mansion on fire. After several years of being instituted, Susan is released, and her father, now married to Susan's former governess (Martha Hyer), takes Susan back to the mansion. The new wife has used up her hubby's money and will do anything to get hold of Susan's half million dollar inheritance, and begins a campaign to send her back to the institution. Susan goes a little bizarre, and thinks maybe she murdered her mother. There is a valuable diamond necklace which Susan hides in her dolls stomach. At one point, she draws a picture of her mother, and the picture bleeds. It is indeed a terrifying thriller, at least in the eyes of a child from the 60's.

The haunting song is called "The Worms Crawl In" by Schoolyard Blues. The lyrics are as follows:
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle with your snout
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
Into your stomach, and out your mouth
They eat your intestines, they scramble your heart
Now you fell like you're falling apart
This is how it is to die
You end up looking like apple pie!
Did you ever see a hearse go by,
And think you could be the next to die?
They put you in a little box,
Cover you up with dirt and rocks
They take you to the family plot
And there you stay, to stink and rot.
For you they make a flower wreath
And chuck you in a hole so deep.
But maybe you're not really gone,
You can hear the mourning song.
You yank the rope to ring the bell
You call for God and you curse hell.
