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.
