Convicted child sex offender and former entertainer Rolf Harris arrives at court.

Harris was sentenced to five years and nine months prison in 2014 for a string of sexual assaults on young girls.

The 84-year-old Australian is a former children's entertainer who spent most of his working life in the UK.

He is currently serving his sentence in Staffordshire, England.

The UK Mail on Sunday newspaper has obtained a letter Harris reportedly sent to a friend that contains the song and details of Harris's life in prison.

In the song, Harris calls his victims "woodworms", saying they "climbed up out of the woodwork ... from forty years ago".

He also refers to the women as "foul accusers" and implies they only came forward to try and get his money.

Amid choruses of "make him squirm" and "make him burn", the song includes the lines "Come and join the feeding frenzy girls" and "Sink your claws right in to the hilt, don't let him go".

"Perhaps you believe you're pretty still, some perfumed sultry wench," another line reads.

In the letter, Harris said he planned to record the song as soon as he is released – which could be towards the end of 2017, depending on whether he is granted parole.

"I envisage a country rock sound with a heavy backbeat," he wrote.

Lawyer Liz Dux, who represented Harris's victims, took to Twitter to express her disgust, saying the song showed "total disdain" for those Harris abused.

In the letter, Harris also said he was doing well in prison and that it "was no hardship, really".

At sentencing in July last year, Justice Nigel Sweeney said Harris had "shown no remorse" for his crimes.

"You clearly got a thrill from committing the offences whilst others were present or nearby," Sweeney said.

"Your reputation now lies in ruins, you have been stripped of your honours but you have no one to blame but yourself."
