Oh the fuzzy caterpillar Curled upon a leaf Spun her little chrysalis And then fell asleep’ While she was sleeping She dreamt of eating pie And later when she woke up She was a butterfly. Cater—caterpillar eats then spins a cocoon Cater—caterpillar becomes a butterfly soon. To the tune of Do Your Ears Hang Low First comes a butterfly who lays some eggs. Out comes the caterpillars with many legs. Oh see the caterpillars eat then spin A little chrysalis to sleep in Oh oh oh we wait and see Out of the chrysalis, my oh my, Out comes a beautiful butterfly To the tune of Up On The Housetop
