"The Butterfly Dance"


     
 
1.
White butterflies,
Bright butterflies
Frolic and drift,
Dance airily,
Prance merrily,
Silent and swift.
     
  2.

Who'll dance with me?
Who'll prance with me
To music sweet,
Tripping along,
Skipping along,
With nimble feet?

     
  3. I'll dance with you,
I'll prance with you
To music sweet,
Tripping along,
Skipping along,
With nimble feet.
     
  4. We'll dance away,
We'll prance away
To music sweet,
Tripping along,
Skipping along,
With nimble feet.
