If I Were a Butterfly

Lyrics

CHORUS:

If I were a butterfly

I’d flutter high into the sky

I’d flutter down and touch the ground

If I were a butter, flutter-fly-flutter

If I were a butterfly.

 

When a butterfly’s born

It has no wings

It’s a creepy-crawly caterpillar thing

When the time is right it makes a chrysalis

Where it cuddles up so small

Then comes the sun and it shines down warm

And one day the chrysalis opens wide. And what comes out?

A butterfly!

The butterfly flies into the air

It flutters here and there and everywhere, here and there and everywhere, here and there and everywhere!

 

CHORUS

 

Oh, butterflies help the flowers grow

They spread the nectar, don’t you know?

They live in places around the world,

From the jungle to the plain.

Their wings are many colors bright

Purple and blue and orange and white

I love to watch them in the air,

flutter here and there and everywhere, here and there and everywhere, here and there and everywhere!

 

CHORUS
