Poor Butterfly, 'neath the blossoms waiting
Poor Butterfly, for she loved him so
The moments pass into hours
The hours pass into years, and as she smiles through her tears
She murmurs low, the moon and I know that he'll be faithful
I'm sure he'll come back by and by
But if he don't come back, I just must die, poor Butterfly

[Repeat, then modulate and repeat again]

    This song is intended as a reminder of "Madame Butterfly," the story of the ill-fated romancve between an American Navy officer and a lovely geisha, back in the days, I assume, before WWII.
