Monarch Metamorphosis

Monarch Metamorphosis

(Sung to Frere Jacques)

Little egg, little egg
On your leaf, on your leaf
Growing very quickly, growing very quickly
What will you be? What will you be?

Funny caterpillar, funny caterpillar
Wearing stripes, wearing stripes
Eating, eating, eating; Eating, eating, eating
Milkweed leaves, milkweed leaves

Magic chrysalis, magic chrysalis
Green and gold, green and gold
What great treasure, what great treasure
Do you hold, do you hold?

Beautiful monarch, beautiful monarch
Glide and fly, glide and fly
Moving off to Mexico, moving off to Mexico
By and by, by and by
