Butterfly in the sky, why don't you fly very high? I see you with a sorrowed eye, listen to me, that's no lie. Butterfly why your tears, have you any troubling fears? I can give you joys and cheers, if you'll live with me your years. Butterfly can you see? You would be happy to live with me. If you live with me you'll be, the happiest butterfly in my tree. Butterfly wipe away your tears, come to me if my tear you hear, because butterfly in the sky, like you, I too am a butterfly. This is copyrighted material. All rights are reserved.
