Caterpiller Pie

I wrote this some years ago for kids…

CATERPILLER PIE

Caterpillar pie! Caterpillar pie!
We’re all having caterpillar pie!

In the middle of the night–when the moon was high
We gathered round the old pig’s sty.
There was Terry Raccoon and Billy Baboon,
Uncle Tommy Turtle and Larry the Loon.

Caterpillar pie! Caterpillar pie!
We’re all having caterpillar pie!

Bess the dog, Murdock the cat,
Young Willie Worm in his best tall hat;
Shelby Snake brought a soggy old shoe,
That was dropped in my drink by Katie Kangaroo!

Caterpillar pie! Caterpillar pie!
We’re all having caterpillar pie!

Millifred Millipede did the can-can
With Silky Sally, the royal Afgan.
When Clarence the Calf leapt over the lake,
Craydad Willie did a doubletake.

Caterpillar pie! Caterpillar pie!
We’re all having caterpillar pie!

Wee Mole Mike is hanging loose
With Horn Head Bob–the big bull moose;
Stinkbug Billy is asking why
Kerry Caterpillar is baking a pie!

Caterpillar pie! Caterpillar pie!
We’re all having caterpillar pie!

Grits in my gravy, rocks in my socks,
Ol’ Hog Piggers is watchin’ his hocks.
Party’s hot–we’re swinging on…
Everybody’s grooving and waiting on…

Caterpillar pie! Caterpillar pie!
We’re all having caterpillar pie!
