Sing a Song

The Life of a Butterfly

Here’s a song you can sing about a butterfly. Tune: Skip To My Lou

I’m a caterpillar, wiggle with me,
I’m a caterpillar, wiggle with me,
I’m a caterpillar, wiggle with me,
What’ll I be, my darlin’?

Z Z Z Z Z
A chrysalis, now sleep like me,
A chrysalis, now sleep like me,
A chrysalis, now sleep like me,
What’ll I be, my darlin’?

A butterfly, come fly with me,
A butterfly, come fly with me,
A butterfly, come fly with me,
What’ll I be, my darlin’?

Now all together, let’s do all 3 three.

A caterpillar, a chrysalis,
A butterfly – three.
Move your body like this with me.
The life of a butterfly, darlin’.
