When you were only five you caught a butterfly
You held it for a while, it made you smile, you caught a butterfly
Finally it flew away, you cried and cried that day
To see it fly so high, an eagle came and caught the butterfly.

So don't fly too high in the sky butterfly
If you fly very high in the sky you'll find the sun may burn your wings
And each song you hear let it go in and out your ear
Don't be fooled by the beautiful songs the nightbirds sing.

Your daddy loves you best, much more than all the rest
I watched you grow to be a lady then you been my butterfly
Learn to fly butterfly before you fly too high
An eagle waits, for watch what you do, be careful butterfly.

And don't fly too high in the sky butterfly
If you fly very high in the sky you'll find the sun may burn your wings
And each song you hear let it go in and out your ear
Don't be fooled by the beautiful songs the nightbirds sing...
