Butterfly and Moth

I’m a pretty butterfly
I sing happily and fly

I’m a pretty, fuzzy moth
Out at night because I’m goth

I’m a butterfly with wings
With my voice I sing, sing sing

I’m a moth, I like the dark
I like flying in the park

I’m a pretty butterfly
I will sing until I die

I’m a moth and I have found
I like flying without sound
