lyrics

Softer than Silk
And as warm as warm milk
Light as air and able to fly
Lost songs no bliss
While they're waiting for her kiss
Pannonica my butterfly

Fluttering one
Fair and bright as the sun
Light as wind embracing the sky
Colorful wings
Soft and gaily painted things
Pannonica my butterfly

Like the lovely flowers
I'll wait for hours
Just to feel your touch
The touch that I love so much
One day she'll flutter by
And I'll hold out my hand
And capture my butterfly

Delicate things
Such as butterfly wings
Poets can't describe though they try
Love played a tune
As she steps from her cocoon
Pannonica my lovely, lovely little butterfly
