Perry Como - "Butterfly (I'll Set You Free)" lyrics

Oh its a sin to catch a butterfly,
So I wont ever try to keep you in a jar!
Ill just let you flip and flow and round,
Ill never tie you down cause thats the way you are!

Butterfly, Ill set you free,
But once in a while,
Please fly home to me!

All the snow has melted from the ground,
When you first came around and held me it was spring!
April showers kept you here with me,
Was it your love for me or water on your wings'
Butterfly, Ill set you free,
But once in a while,
Please make love to me!

Its a sin to catch a butterfly,
So Ill just say good-bye and watch you fly away!
But should you feel by the winters chill,
Come to my window sill Ill never make you stay!

Butterfly, Ill set you free,
But once in a while,
Please come home to me!
