The text is composed of rhyming couplets and has several refrains instructing the reader to sing nonsense words. At the end, the children are even singing from within the belly of the Wuggly Ump. The illustrations are bright and colorful, the text is sparse and rhyming, and the drawings are simplistic and child-like.

The vocabulary, aside from the nonsense words, are fairly low and not too difficult to understand, even for a young child. Even if they will not conquer them, as no reader will escape death, the book seems to reassure them that it will still be okay. In these three particular pages from the text, the progression of plot is shown from the Wuggly Ump being a distant threat, to its approach, to its consumption of the children.

The illustrations remain just as cheerfully colored throughout the text. The Wuggly Ump seems to represent what children often fear: monsters and the unknown, or even death. It appears that Gorey wants to send the message that, inevitably, scary things will happen in life. The monster will show up at your home and there is no escape, but you can choose to sing through the strange and scary parts of life like the children do in this book.

Sing glogalipmp, sing glogalump, From deep inside the Wuggly Ump. Sing tirraloo, sing tirralay, The Wuggly Ump lives far away. Sing hushaboo, sing hushaby, The Wuggly Ump is drawing nigh.
