The Butterfly Cycle (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)
Hatch, hatch little egg,
I’m so very small.
Teeny tiny caterpillar,
You can’t see me at all.
Crawl, caterpillar, crawl,
Munching on a leaf.
Eat and eat and eat.
Form, form a chrysalis,
I’m a different shape;
Hanging by a silken thread
Until I can escape.
Rest, rest, chrysalis While I change inside; Now at last by time has come To be a butterfly. Stretch, stretch, pretty wings, It’s 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.
