The First Butterfly
by The Boones, Debby Boone

Album: Steve Flannigan & Friends


In the land of caterpillars
With its dandelion pillars
For the worms there was no world
Beyond their town
They didn't know a bird could fly
They'd never seen a sunlit sky
Their eyes were always facing down
Their lives were fastened to the ground

In the land of caterpillars
With its dandelion pillars

But one young caterpillar saw
That they were blinded by their law
He spent His lifetime
Showing them the sky
He said he'd fly just like the birds
Some said 'Take me!' Some said 'Absurd!'
Yet 'Someday, I will fly,' he said
'But first I'll have to die"

In the land of caterpillars
With its dandelion pillars

Then they led him to a fallen leaf
To see the caterpillar chief
Who questioned him
And sentenced him to die
So he made him spin himself a tomb
But nature changed it to a womb
And he was born again to fly
And be the world's first Butterfly

In the land of caterpillars
With its dandelion pillars

Butterfly, Butterfly
Won't you please teach us to fly
You told us that you would someday
But we thought it was a lie
Then the wind breathed out a sigh
And filled the air with His reply
He whispered as He fluttered by
'You only have to die'

A Man lived very long ago
A Man of sorrow, a Man of woe
He came to open up our earthbound eye
What once was His cocoon
Is now a dark and empty tomb
The day He went to die for me
He showed me how to fly
You see, He showed me how to fly

Butterfly, butterfly
Won't you please teach us to fly
You told us that you would someday
But we thought it was a lie
Then the wind breathed out a sigh
And filled the air with his reply
He whispered as he fluttered by
'You only have to die'
'You only have to die'
