Something silly to keep the site alive


Caterpillar, caterpillar,
You are a caterpillar.
No pillar of salt,
Or a cat on a boat
A caterpillar is what you are
You are
A Caterpillar is what you are.


When the sun is shining
You look like a caterpillar
When the dog is whining
You still look like a caterpillar
A caterpillar is what you are
You are,
A caterpillar is what you are.


One day you’ll become a butterfly
No longer just a caterpillar
Around the garden you’ll fly
No longer a caterpillar
A butterfly is what you’ll be
You’ll be
A butterfly is what you’ll be.


Butterflies are pretentious things
Cherish you caterpillar days
Boasting about colourful wings
Remember your caterpillar ways
Stay being a caterpillar
Mister caterpillar
Stay being a lovely caterpillar


A caterpillar is what you are
You are,
A caterpillar is what you are.
