Sarah Vaughan - Poor Butterfly Lyrics

  • There's a story told of a little Japanese.
  • Sitting demurely 'neath the cherry blossom trees.
  • Miss Butterfly's her name.
  • A sweet little innocent child was she
  • 'Till a fine young American from the sea
  • To her garden came.
  • They met 'neath the cherry blossoms everyday.
  • And he taught her how to love the American way.
  • To love with her soul t'was easy to learn.
  • Then he sailed away with a promise to return.
  • 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 to me by and by.
  • But if he won't come back then I'll never sigh or cry,
  • I just must die.
  • Poor butterfly.
