CATCH ANOTHER BUTTERFLY

Do you remember
Not so very long ago
When the world was run by people
Twice your size
And the days were full of laughter
And the nights were full of stars
And when you grew tired
And you could close your eyes

Yes the stars were there for wishing
And the wind was there for kites
And the morning sun was there for rise and shine
And even if the sniffles
Kept you home from school in bed
You couldn't hardy stay there after nine

And I wonder if the smell of morning's faded
What happened to the robin's song
That sparkled in the sky
Where's all the water gone
That stumbled down a stream
Will I ever catch another butterfly?

Do you remember camp-outs
Right in your own backyard
Wondering how airplanes could fly
And the hours spent playin'
With a funny rock you found
With crystal specks as blue as all the sky

And I wonder if the smell of morning's faded
What happened to the robin's song
That sparkled in the sky
Where's all the water gone
That stumbled down a stream
Will I ever catch another butterfly?

Now I watch my son
He's playin' with his toys
He's happy, I give him all I can
But I can't help feelin'
Just a little tingly inside
When I hear him say he wants to be a man

And I wonder if the smell of morning's faded
What happened to the robin's song
That sparkled in the sky
Where's all the water gone
That stumbled down a stream
Will I ever catch another butterfly?
Will I ever catch another butterfly?
