Song: Blue Butterfly
Sung to the tune of "Baby Mine"
Step 1
"Blue Butterfly"

Butterfly in the sky,
Little one floating by,
On your wings, fragile and free,
Please come to me, blue butterfly.


Butterfly when you land
You’re so soft on my hand.
Tiny feet on legs so thin
Walk on my skin, blue butterfly.


I know you cannot stay.
You must go fly away.
Time to find nectar to eat
From flowers so sweet, blue butterfly.


- Jennifer Bové
