Butterfly

Album: We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things (2009)
  • I'm taking a moment just imagining that I'm dancing with you
    I'm your pole and all you're wearing is your shoes
    You got soul, you know what to do to turn me on until I write a song about you

    And you have your own engaging style
    And you've got the knack to vivify
    And you make my slacks a little tight
    You may unfasten them if you like
    That's if you crash and spend the night

    But you don't fold, you don't fade
    You got everything you need, especially me
    Sister, you've got it all

    You make the call to make my day
    In your message say my name
    Your talk is all the talk
    Sister, you've got it all
    You got it all

    Curl your upper lip up and let me look around and
    Ride your tongue along your bottom lip then bite down and
    Bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch
    'Cause they're the perfect jumping off point
    Getting closer to your butterfly

    Will you float on by?
    Oh, kiss me with your eyelashes tonight
    Or Eskimo, your nose real close to mine
    And let's mood the lights and finally make it right

    But you don't fold, you don't fade
    You got everything you need, especially me
    Sister, you've got it all

    You make the call to make my day
    In your message say my name
    Your talk is all the talk
    Sister, you've got it all

    You got it all, you got it all, you got it all
    You got it all, you got it all, you got it all
    You got it all, woo, hey baby, uh
    You've got it all

    Doll, I need to see you pull your knee socks up
    Let me feel you upside down, slide in, slide out
    Slide over here, climb into my mouth now child

    Butterfly, well, you landed on my mind
    Damn right, you landed on my ear and then you crawled inside
    And now I see you perfectly behind closed eyes
    I want to fly with you and I don't want to lie to you

    'Cause I, 'cause I can't recall a better day
    So I'm coming to shine on the occasion
    You're an open-minded lady, you've got it all

    And I never forget a face
    Except for maybe my own, I have my days
    And let's face the fact here
    It's you who's got it all

    You know that fortune favors the brave
    Well, let me get paid while I make your breakfast
    The rest is up to you, you make the call

    You make the call to make my day
    In your message say my name
    Your talk is all the talk
    Sister, you've got it all

    I can't recall a better day
    So I'm coming to shine on the occasion
    Hey sophisticated lady, oh, you got it all

    You got it all, you got it all
    You got it all, you got it all, you got it all
    You got it all, you got it all, you got it all
    You got it all, hey! You got it all, woo

    You got it all, hey
    You got it all
    Butterfly, baby, well, you got it all Writer/s: Jason Mraz

  • Anonymous from Bournemouth UkI like all the songs on this album but I spelt the name as Maraz when looking in my local HMV store so had to hum I'm yours out loud. There was one copy left so I went away very pleased with myself. Judy an OAP
  • Becky from Toledo, OhGod I love this song. Makes me want to dance for my husband!
