E D A Conrad the Caterpillar thought he was really killer, E D A Couldn't wait to build a cocoon (original lyrics) or E D A Couldn't wait to buy blue suede shoes (recent lyrics) E D A Spent all his days eatin' leaves in the shade E D A And stayed when the night set, too. E D A Conrad the Caterpillar knew life would be a thriller E D A Soon as the threads was spun B Wouldn't stop to play in the Caterpillar Games D A Till his own webbing game was done. E D A E D A He said, "No, no, I got no time to play, E Got a thousand little legs D A E D A That don't get me too far in a day, E D A E D A I'm leaving, looks like I can't stay." B B D A (Main Riff and short Mikey solo) Verse 2: That little pillar he found him a willow Spun in with a craftsmans weave Wound so tightly to protect him from the light And all shapes of water that drop from the leaves Conrad the Caterpillar knew he would be a chiller And he wound it tighter some more Wound it so wide and the ends of his legs got sore. He said, "No, now I can't feel my feet Just when I thought It was time to take a stroll on down the street I'm leaving, looks like I can't leave What do you know? What's all this moving around with inside me?

Verse 3: What kind of 'piller could touch the world of a miller Chopping trees to build a new store Nobody sees a lonely bump on the tree Except a lump who's crying for more Conrad the Caterpillar knew life would be a chiller As he wound it tighter some more Anybody stands in the caterpillar's place Is moving in a standing run
