Tiny caterpillar song-by sue nicholls

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by kerry*g, Mar 8, 2007.

  1. Hi,
    Does anyone know the lyrics to the song tiny caterpillar byt sue nicholls- its sung to the tune of she'll be coming round the mountain...think the first verse is: There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle
    There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle
    There's a tiny caterpillar
    Tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle.

    then I think it goes on to eating the leaf, spinning the cocoon and then turing into a butterfly.I'm just not sure of the lyrics that go with the verses!

    Thank you!!

    A leaf is what he's eating for his lunch munch munch
    A leaf is what he's eating for his lunch munch munch
    A leaf is what he's eating A leaf is what he's eating
    A leaf is what he's eating for his lunch munch munch
     
  4. I think it is goes something like this;

    He eats the leaves around him until he's full, munch, munch, x2

    He eats the leaves around him, he eats the leaves around him, he eats the leaves around him until he's full, munch, munch.

    A cocoon is what he's spinning for his home, spin, spin x2

    A cocoon is what he's spinning, a cocoon is what he's spinning, a cocoon is what he's spinning for his home, spin, spin.

    Then he will be a butterfly and fly away. flap, flap x2

    He will be a butterfly, be a butterfly, be a butterfly and flap away, flap flap.

    I don't know if this is completly right but it goes something like this.
     
  5. the second verse is:
    He will eat the leaf around him till he's full MUNCH MUNCH
    third: A cocoon is what he's spinning for his home SPIN SPIN
    fourth: Then he'll be a butterfly and fly away FLAP FLAP
    fifth:
    So that little caterpillar went like this WIGGLE WIGGLE, MUNCH MUNCH, SPIN SPIN, FLAP FLAP
    actions are wiggle finger, thumb and fingers 'munching flat hand (leaf), two fingers spinning round each other, thumbs connected flap fingers as wings. Hope this is helpful?
     
  6. it's in the foundation stage music express, sung beautifully

    but verses 3 & 4 go

    a cocoon is what he's spinning for his home - spin spin....

    then he'll be a butterfly and fly away -flap flap
