On Sunday, 1 little egg, on Sunday, 1 little egg,
On Sunday, 1 little egg, out comes a caterpillar.

On Monday, 1 red apple, on Monday, 1 red apple,
On Monday 1 red apple, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

On Tuesday, 2 yellow pears, on Tuesday, 2 yellow pears,
On Tuesday, 2 yellow pears, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

On Wednesday, 3 purple plums, on Wednesday, 3 purple plums,
On Wednesday, 3 purple plums, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

On Thursday, 4 red strawberries, on Thursday, 4 red strawberries,
On Thursday, 4 red strawberries, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

On Friday, 5 oranges, on Friday, 5 oranges,
On Friday, 5 oranges, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

On Saturday, too much food, on Saturday, too much food,
On Saturday, too much food, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

On Sunday, 1 green leaf, on Sunday, 1 green leaf,
On Sunday, 1 green leaf, that’s what the caterpillar eats.

In his cocoon, he goes to sleep, in his cocoon, he goes to sleep,
In his cocoon, he goes to sleep, that’s what the caterpillar does.

Out comes a butterfly, out comes a butterfly,
Out comes a butterfly, isn’t that a great surprise!
