I’m a little tiny fury little cute little caterpillar
wandering through our big wide world.
I find a branch to climb…
taking my sweet old time.
when I finally got to the top of the branch,
I was so happy, I did a little dance
there were green leaves everywhere
for all of our creatures to share
so I munched on a bunch…
I ate those green leaves for breakfast, dinner, and lunch
until I got bigger and bigger
and fatter and fatter.
I didn’t stop until I felt like I was going to pop
but once I did stop
I don’t know why, but I got this sudden urge to fly high through our big blue sky.
So I looked up at the sky and closed my eyes and repeatedly said
“give me wings so I could fly” (3X)
In my mind, I started spinning…
then the urge took it’s full force
I really started spinning… I was spinning
round and round and round and round (3X)
as if the world was my very own merry go round
so I laughed with glee
almost making myself have to pee
I laughed so much, I didn’t even realize…
I spun myself inside my very own cocoon.
I said, “oh boy, I hope I get out of here soon”
so I waited and waited and waited and meditated and waited.
one magical morning everything seemed brighter…
colors of the rainbow…
flourished inside my cocoon
red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple
then all of the sudden I got the urge to break free,
so on the count of three
I pushed and pushed…
“ah ha, I’m free, what’s this?
I have wings…I could fly
I’m a butterfly
I have wings…I have wings
I could fly
my wish came true”!
So I flew high through our big blue sky.
Looking down I noticed,
I smiled to myself and thought…mmm…one day there wish to fly high through our big blue sky will come true too!
