"Little Butterfly" lyrics - 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

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
