But Cecil wasn't a Snail.........Cecil was a caterpillar


CECIL WAS A CATERPILLAR

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The first time I saw Cecil
he was    <..this..>    big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecile said
I've been eating cabbages

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The first time I saw Cecil
he was    <..........THIS..........>    big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecile said
I've eaten all the cabbages in the garden

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The first time I saw Cecil
he was <

................THIS................

> big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecile said
I've eaten all the cabbages in all the world

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The first time I saw Cecil he was <..this..> big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecile said

I've been SICK

Let's try and get the words right this time, instead of just cutting and pasting each verse then forgetting to check them


CECIL WAS A CATERPILLAR

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The first time I saw Cecil
he was <..this..> big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecil said
I've been eating cabbages

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The next time I saw Cecil
he was <..........THIS..........> big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecil said
I've eaten all the cabbages in the garden

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The next time I saw Cecil
he was

<........THIS........>

big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecil said
I've eaten all the cabbages in all the world

Cecil was a caterpillar
Cecil was my friend
The last time I saw Cecil he was <..this..> big
And I said
Cecil, what have you been doing ?
And Cecil said

I've been SICK

I've only ever heard this at camp fires, but it has always been rendered with a lisp (is that non pc these days?) so it starts:
"Thethil wath a caterpillar,
Thethil wath my friend,
The firtht time I thaw Thethil
He wath thith big


etc.,

Nigel
