What pretty wings you flutter, Butterflies, butterflies
Please take me up there with you, let me with you rise,
Ay pretty wings we flutter, Butterflies, butterflies,
You have no wings to float on, no, you cannot rise.
2. What lovely things you look at, Butterflies, butterflies,
Bright flowers and trees you look at
When you sail the skies.
Ay, lovely things we look at, Butterflies, butterflies,
Yet you see more than we see,
You have bigger eyes!
