Pink Martini - The Butterfly Song Lyrics



Butterfly - dance across the sky to me
Come and spend some time with me
I promise not to pin you down
Or even frown
If you have to fly away
Into someone else's dream
Come and spend some time with me
Linger just a little while – butterfly style
Before you flitter away

I used to think that butterflies were meant for catchin'
'Til the time I caught one in my net
Took it home and tried to make it happy
But the very next day (the very next day)
The next day it was dead

Butterfly I buried in the meadow
Where I'd found it flying so free
After that I learned my lesson
If you love a butterfly (if you love a butterfly)
If you love it let it be

If you love a butterfly (if you love a butterfly)
If you love a butterfly (if you love a butterfly)
If you love it let it be

Butterfly – glad to see you back again
Come and rest your wings my friend
I promise not to pin you down
Or even frown
If you have to fly away
Into someone else's dream
Come and spend some time with me
Linger just a little while – butterfly style
Before you flitter away
Before you flitter away
Before you flitter away
Before you flitter away
