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?
The butterfly flies into the air
It flutters here and there and everywhere, here and there and everywhere, here and there and everywhere!
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!
