LISTEN TO THE BUTTERFLY

Mommie, see the Robin sing!

See the way he spreads his wings.

Come and see the world go by

and listen to the butterfly!

The world is such a happy thing;

kittens dance and robins sing.

Catch it as it hurries by

and listen for the butterfly.
Wings as light as thistle down

make a sweet and lovely sound;

like Daddy’s kiss and Mommie’s sigh.

Oh, listen for the butterfly!

Listen to the butterfly.

Hear him as he flutters by.

Daddy’s kiss and Mommie’s sigh,

Soft and sweet as a butterfly!
