Lyrics

LIKE A CATERPILLAR,
WHO STARTED SMALL AND SHY,
THOUGH IT MIGHT SEEM IMPOSSIBLE,
WAS AIMING FOR THE SKY.

SHE SET HER SIGHTS, AND SOUGHT TO FIND,
HER PLACE, A PERFECT FIT,
THOUGH TIMES GOT TOUGH,
SHE'D NOT GIVE UP,
SHE SIMPLY STUCK TO IT.

THEN SHE BEGAN TO CHANGE INSIDE,
AND GREW IN EVERY WAY,
NOW IT'S QUITE REMARKABLE,
WHO SHES BECOME TODAY.

NOW COMPLETELY CONFIDENT,
NO LONGER SMALL AND SHY,
SHE SPREADS HER BRIGHTLY COLORED WINGS,
AND SHES, ABOUT TO FLY.
