The Butterfly Song
(If I Were a Butterfly)

This is a great song PLUS series of crafts to do over a few weeks at Sunday school or...

Have the different classes do a different craft and put them all on popsicle sticks to make puppets).  Then get together or in front of the congregation and sing the song (have all the children hide their puppets behind their back).  Pull out the puppets and wave them around during the various parts of the song.

I'd like to add my special thanks to the folks at the www.butterflysong.com website for pointing out a few words I had wrong and for graciously allowing us to keep the content on the site.  They have the sheet music, a Christian Children's Songbook and the CD for sale on their site so make sure to check out their on-line store, there are lots of other great songs like this one available on the CD..

Words and Music by Brian Howard

 

If I were a butterfly, Id thank you Lord for giving me wings
If I were a robin in a tree, Id thank you Lord that I could sing
If I were a fish in the sea, Id wiggle my tail and Id giggle with glee
But I just thank you father for making me, me.

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.

If I were an elephant, Id thank you Lord by raising my trunk
If I were a kangaroo, You know Id hop right up to you
If I were an octopus, Id thank you Lord for my fine looks
But I just thank you Father for making me, me

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.

If I were a wiggly worm, Id thank you Lord that I could squirm
If I were a fuzzy wuzzy bear, Id thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair
If I were a crocodile, Id thank you Lord for my great smile
But I just thank you Father for making me, me

For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
And I just thank you Father for making me, me.
