5 Little Caterpillars
Written and illustrated By John Hampson

5 little caterpillars munching on a leaf
1 little caterpillar takes a little sleep
This little caterpillar wakes up with a cry
I'm not a little caterpillar I'm a great big butterfly

4 little caterpillars munch the leaf some more
1 little caterpillar soon begins to snore
This little caterpillar wakes up with a cry 
I'm not a little caterpillar I'm a great big butterfly

3 little caterpillars munching on their snack
1 little caterpillar takes a little nap
This little caterpillar wakes up with a cry 
I'm not a little caterpillar I'm a great big butterfly

2 little caterpillars munch the leaf and choose
1 little caterpillar to have a little  snooze
This little caterpillar wakes up with a cry
I'm not a little caterpillar I'm a great big butterfly

1 little caterpillar left upon the leaf
1 little caterpillar crys out with relief
I'm not a lucky caterpillar, if I had nodded off
I would not have been a butterfly I'd have been a bloomin moth!!
