Five little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Four little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close his eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Three little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

Two little caterpillars wiggling on a leaf,
One falls off, goes to sleep.
Close his eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

One little caterpillar wiggling on a leaf,
She falls off, goes to sleep.
Close her eyes and wait a week,
Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.

No more caterpillars, no more leaves!
Five little butterflies floating on the breeze.
