To be quick, quick, quick.

And he rapped on the door

And he shook his head.

Put her straight to bed.

For a pill, pill, pill;

"I’ be back in the morning

if she’s still ill."

CATERPILLARS ONLY CRAWL

A butterfly was flying through a garden in July.

He landed on a cabbage leaf and heard a mournful sigh.

A big fat hairy caterpillar nibbling on a leaf,

Said, " If I could fly like you, it woul be a relief."

Chorus:

But caterpillars only crawl,

Caterpillars only crawl,

Crawling here, nibbling there,

Crawling, nibbling everywhere.

Caterpillars only crawl,

And I’d like to reach the garden wall,

But on this leaf I’ll stay,

Nibbling all the day,

Never getting anywhere at all.

 

Look here, said the butterfly, not very long ago,

I sat and nibbled leaves like you and

crawled around so slow.

But soon you you’ll be a butterfly, and through

the leaves you’ll flutter by,

And you will so happy that you never

more will say.

Chorus:

Caterpillars only crawl,

Caterpillars only crawl,

Crawling here, nibbling there,

Crawling, nibbling everywhere.

Caterpillars only crawl,

And I just crawl and nubble, that’s all,

But one fine day,

You will fly away,

And flutter by the garden wall.

LET IT SNOW TOMORROW

Let it snow tomorrow,

I hope it’s very deep.

Just let it snow and snow and snow,

When I am fast asleep.

Every place has a brand-new-face,

that’s all dressed up in white.

Then I’ll climb the mountainside,

And with my sledge have a million rides!

So let it snow on monday, Tuesday,

Wednesday, Thursday,

On Friday let it snow and don’t miss

Saturday and Sunday.

My secret wish is simply this,

Just let it snow tomorrow,

Let it snow tomorrow

Let it snow tomorrow just for me!

CENTIPEDE SONG

A centipede would certainly need

A hundred stripy socks,

But what’ll he do when his socks wear

through

from climbing trees and rocks?

What ‘ll he do when his socks wear through,

When all of his socks wear out?

He’ll sit in a heap and start to weep,

and his mother begins to shout.

Here’s what his mother will shout,

When all of this socks wear out.

Chorus:

I’ve bought you ten, bought you twenty,

Bought you thirty, forty, fifty,

Bought you sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety,

bought you a hundred socks!

So off you go, now, sonny,

Do you think I’m made of money?

Until I can afford to buy you more,

You can keep your feet right off the floor!

A centipede would certainly need

A hundred rubber boots.

But what’ll he do when his boots wear throught,

From wriggling under roots?

What’ll he do when his boots wear throught,

When all of his boots wear out?

He’ll sit in a heap and start to weep,

And his mother will shout.

Here’s what his mother will shout,

When all of his boots wear out.

Chorus:

I’ve bought you ten, bought you twenty,

Bought you thirty, forty, fifty,

Bought you sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety,

bought you a hundred socks!

Until I can afford to buy you more,

You can keep your feet right off the floor!
