Da Wiggly Caterpillar lyrics

Dir wis wance a wiggly caterpillar

Dat wiggled an wiggled aa day

Ee wiggled over here an ee wiggled over dere

An ee never ever lost his wy

Dan wan day ee wiggled up a graet big waa

An ee stopped dere fur a while

Ee went ta sleep fur a long long time

An woke up wi a smile

Dan wan day ee opened 'is eyes

An ee began ta fly

Am a butterfly and a'll flutter-by

No more wigglin fur me fur me

No more wigglin' fur me
