IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Little Butterfly

IRVING BERLIN
"Little Butterfly"

[1st verse:]
Butterfly, without a single care
You flit from here to there
Your heart is ev'rywhere
Fluttering about from boy to boy
Filling your heart with joy
Playing with each new toy

[Refrain:]
Butterfly, little butterfly
Flitting 'round from flow'r to flower

Each time you change your mind
You leave a lonely heart behind

You play your part with a new sweetheart
'Til you have him in your power

And then you flutter away
To leave him crying all day
Come back, little butterfly

[2nd verse:]
Butterfly, take warning while you may
Youth only lasts a day
Blossoms and fades away
There will come a morning when you'll cry
Poor little butterfly
You know the reason why
