Butterfly Cycle

Tune:Row, Row, Row Your Boat

 

Hatch, hatch, little egg,

Iím so very small.

Teeny tiny caterpillar,

you canít see me at all.

 

Crawl, caterpillar, crawl,

Munching on a leaf.

Crawling, munching, crawling, munching,

Eat and eat and eat.

 

Form, form chrysalis

Iím a different shape;

Hanging by a silken thread

Until I can escape.

 

Rest, rest, chrysalis

While I change inside.

Now at last my time has come

To be a butterfly.

 

Stretch, stretch, pretty wings,

Itís a special day.

Soon they will be strong enough

For me to fly away.

 

Fly, fly, butterfly,

Fly from flower to tree.

Find a place to lay my eggs

So they can grow like me.
