If I were a butterfly...

Natalie and I were driving along in the car yesterday, on our way to a birthday/skating party, and this song came on.  I had put the song on the ipod ages ago, forgot about it, and then when it came on my instinct was to change the song.  Natalie changed it back.  She'd never heard it and wanted to.  And the funny thing is, it was my ALL TIME favorite song to sing at church when we had kids’ mass (back in the day at good ‘ol St. Pat’s in Dixon).

It’s got moves and everything!!!  Yes, we were doing the moves as we drove down the road.  We even changed some of the words to add a little Elvis flare!



The Butterfly Song/ {AKA the kids want to snap their arms like a crocodile song} 

If I were a butterfly, I'd thank you Lord for giving me wings
If I were a robin in a tree, I'd thank you Lord that I could sing
If I were a fish in the sea, I'd wiggle my tail and I'd giggle with glee
But I just thank you father for making me, me (Uh, huh, huh, oh….)

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, I'd thank you Lord by raising my trunk
If I were a kangaroo, You know I'd hop right up to you
If I were an octopus, I'd thank you Lord for my fine looks
But I just thank you Father for making me, me (Uh, huh, huh, oh….)

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, I'd thank you Lord that I could squirm
If I were a fuzzy wuzzy bear, I'd thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair
If I were a crocodile, I'd thank you Lord for my great smile
But I just thank you Father for making me, me (Uh, huh, huh, oh….)

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

And I just thank you Father for making me, ME!
