butterfly love lyrics – jim reeves

your b*tterfly love just flutters around
from flower to flower, drops their heads to the ground
there’re leaves that fall and wither and die
when your b*tterfly love comes drifting by.

i found out just what it is that you like most of all
to take a little honey then let our poor hearts fall
how i got mixed up in this i guess i’ll never know
i would like to clip your wings and then tell you no.

your b*tterfly love just flutters around
from flower to flower, drops the leaves to the ground
there’re leaves that fall and wither and die
when your b*tterfly love comes drifting by.

i’m just one of a hundred flowers waiting for your b*tterfly love.

— instrumental —

i grew here in a garden with a hundred more or so
i’ve never dreamed my face would come from a love as pure as snow
everytime i see your wings a floating in the breeze
i know i’m helpless and you come and go just as you please.

your b*tterfly love just flutters around
from flower to flower drops the leaves to the ground
there’re leaves that fall and wither and die
when your b*tterfly love come drifting by.

i’ll need a net to catch you and when i finally do
i’ll make you taste a bitter love the kind i got from you
i’ll take a hundred others and love them one by one
and you can watch just like i did then i’ll have all the fun.

your b*tterfly love that flutters around
from flower to flower drops their heads to the ground
there’re leaves that fall and wither and die
when your b*tterfly love comes drifting by.

i’m just one of a hundred flowers waiting for your b*tterfly love…
