Lyrics

Five little butterflies by the door.
One flew away, then there were four.

Four little butterflies by the tree.
One flew away, then there were three.

Three little butterflies up in the blue.
One flew away, then there were two.

Two little butterflies out in the sun.
One flew away, then there was one.

One little butterfly now all alone.
She was so lonely, she flew home.

Five little butterflies on flowers galore,
One flew off, then there were four.

Four little butterflies among the sweet peas.
One flew off, then there were three.

Three little butterflies with nothing to do,
One flew off, then there were two.

Two little butterflies resting in the sun,
One flew off, then there was one.

One little butterfly, now the only one,
She flew off, then there were none.
