Charted: 1 1
  • You tell me you love me, you say you'll be true
    Then you fly around with somebody new
    But I'm crazy about you, you butterfly

    You treat me mean, you're makin' me cry
    I've made up my mind to tell you goodbye
    But I'm no good without you, you butterfly

    I knew from the first time I kissed you
    That you were the troublin' kind
    'Cause the honey drips from your sweet lips
    One taste and I'm outta my mind

    I love you so much I know what I'll do
    I'm clippin' your wings, your flyin' is through
    'Cause I'm crazy about you, you butterfly (ooh, ah)

    Bom, bom, bom
    Ooh, I'm crazy about you, you butterfly (ooh, ah)
    Bom, bom, bom, bom
    Ooh, I can't live without you, you butterfly (ooh, ah)

    I knew from the first time I kissed you
    That you were the troublin' kind
    'Cause the honey that drips from your sweet lips
    One taste and I'm outta my mind

    Ooh, I love you so much I know what I'll do
    I'm clippin' your wings, your flyin' is through
    'Cause I'm crazy about you, you butterfly

    You butterfly
    You butterfly (ooh, ah)Writer/s: Bernie Lowe, Kal Mann
