Lyrics

If I were a butterfly, I'd thank you Lord for giving me wings
If I were a robin in a tree, I'd thank you Lord that I could sing
If I were a fish in the sea, I'd wiggle my tail and I'd giggle with glee
But I just thank you father for making me, me.

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.

If I were an elephant, I'd thank you Lord by raising my trunk
If I were a kangaroo, You know I'd hop right up to you
If I were an octopus, I'd thank you Lord for my fine looks
But I just thank you Father for making me, me.

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.

If I were a wiggly worm, I'd thank you Lord that I could squirm
If I were a fuzzy wuzzy bear, I'd thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair
If I were a crocodile, I'd thank you Lord for my great smile
But I just thank you Father for making me, me.

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.

Information About The Butterfly Song

"The Butterfly Song" (If I Were a Butterfly) is a delightful song written by children's musician Brian Howard. who also wrote 'I Just Wanna Be A Sheep'. Brian loves to write music with catchy tunes that are full of joy and help people experience the love of God. He grew up on a dairy farm and has been singing ever since he was 9-years-old.

The song was written in 1974 and since then has been sung by children all over the world. It was also recorded by the popular 1980's children's character Psalty the Singing Songbook. and released on the album 'Kids' Praise Album 1'.

This song has a wonderful cast of animal characters that makes it extra fun to sing with children. Make up motions together and pretend to be each animal as you sing. Talk about all the unique ways animals can praise God, and see if you can come up with additional verses. And don't forget to praise God for all the amazing ways he has made YOU special.
