The Butterfly Hunt

From "Catch That Butterfly"
 (tune: "The Barber of Seville (overture)")

I've got you! I've got you! I've-got-you...
We almost had it, almost caught it, we almost netted that beautiful butterfly
But then it fluttered away in the desert sky and now I'm just so disappointed I could cry
'Cause we have been chasing that butterfly all up and down
Below and high, dee-di-dee-di-dee-di-dee-di!
All through the desert, through the desert, all through the canyons and rivers, we searchify
Beautiful butterfly, magical butterfly, but now you're gone
And I'm a really, really, really, really disappointed guy
Disappointed guy...
Yes, I am a disappointed, disappointed gu-uy
Disappointed guy...
Yes, because I really want to catch the butterfl-y
As for us, we're just feeling sore
And we don't wanna follow butterflies any more
Sore, yes we're sore and our stagecoach has been demolished
Sore, yes we're sore, I wish bug hunting was abolished
Wait! Wait! Look! Oh, I see something flying over there now
Yes! Oh, I see golden wings up in the air now
Go! Go!
Oh, yes I love that pesky little critter
Butterfly, this isn't over yet cause I can see you and I bet
That I will catch you with my net, you're sure the thing I've come to get!
