JUST LIKE A BUTTERFLY THAT'S CAUGHT IN THE RAIN Harry MacGregor Woods (m) Mort Dixon (l) 1927 as rec by Harry Richman June 14th 1927 New York also rec by- Paul Whiteman & his Orch '27 Vincent Lopez & his Casa Lopez Orch '27 Blossom Seeley '27 The Ipana Troubadours Annette Hanshaw Here I am, lonely, Tired and lonely, Crying for home in vain, Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain! Longing for flowers, Dreaming of hours Back in the sun-kissed lane, Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain! I know that all of the world is cheery By that old cottage door, Why are my wings so weary? I can't fly any more! Here I am praying, Brokenly saying, "Give me the sun again!", Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain! When it's raining from the sky, And I see a butterfly, I can almost hear him sighing 'Cause he has to stop his flying. I can easily sympathise With those helpless butterflies! Here I am, lonely, Tired and lonely, Crying for home in vain, Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain! Longing for flowers, Dreaming of hours Back in the sun-kissed lane, Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain! I know that all of the world is cheery By that old cottage door, Why are my wings so weary? I can't fly any more! Here I am praying, Brokenly saying, "Give me the sun again!", Just like a butterfly that's caught in the rain! (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2009)
