Caterpillar

Written By: Christy Wessler

Caterpillar

Caterpillar walking along on 30 odd legs
Just singing a song
While all the other buggies are laughing at him
You know why?
Cause he keeps saying, “Someday, I don’t know how, but I’m gonna fly!”

I’m gonna flutter through the breezes in the sky
I’m gonna take these wings that I don’t have and fly
My oh my

Caterpillar nobody knows where he gets the idea he can fly
Where does he get the idea he can do the impossible
Caterpillar nobody cares to hear the improbable odds
So he just keeps smiling and nods and goes on his way
Hey, hey

Well, soon he pulls himself up high into a tree
He builds himself a fine cocoon
And gently rocks himself to sleep

All the buggies say, “Look at him hide!
He must be crying inside! We damaged his pride
Oh, what did he expect from the lot of us
And you know why?
Cause he kept saying, “Someday, I don’t know how, but I’m gonna fly!”
Ay, Ay

What do we see, what do we do
There’s a tear in the funny cocoon
Look up there, up in the sky
Well, I’ll be darned he’s a butterfly

Caterpillar nobody knew where he got the idea he could fly
Where did he get the idea he could try oh to do the impossible
Caterpillar nobody cared to hear the improbable odds
So he just keeps smiling and nods as he flies away
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
There he goes!
