The Cocoon I found a cocoon That a caterpillar made, Fastened to a leaf Hanging in the shade. He barely had room To wiggle or wag, Like me zipped up In my sleeping bag.
I looked each time That I passed his way, But he never budged Until just today. Something happened! He wagged and wiggled
And then climbed out And carefully jiggled Small wet wings That grew as they dried. He'd turned to a butterfly Inside!
Caterpillar, Caterpillar (to the tune of "Motor Boat, Motor Boat") Caterpillar, caterpillar, long and slow. Caterpillar, caterpillar eat and grow. Caterpillar, caterpillar close your eyes. Caterpillar, caterpillar change your size. Caterpillar, caterpillar where'd you go?
Funny Little Caterpillar Funny little caterpillar crawling on the ground. Funny little caterpillar nowhere to be found. Though we've looked and looked and hunted everywhere around!
