MADAME BUTTERFLY From the opera "Madame Butterfly" by Puccini (Adapted by Malcolm McLaren / Robby Kilgore) Malcolm McLaren Pinkerton: Back in Nagasaki I got married to Cho Cho San That was her name in those days And I was her man I'm going back to visit her She got a problem She got a little Cho Cho Cho Cho San was her name And this is her tale of woe Take it away Cho Cho Cho Cho San: Today's the day when I see clear A tiny thread of smoke appears Where blue skies fall upon the ocean And shake this staid emotion All the while I sing this song I see a dot on the horizon Growing bigger every second Gleaming white in my direction Who on earth can it be Coming up the path for me? What on earth will he say? Shall I run to him or run away? Freaking out he's come to get me My feet are stuck but just won't let me Run to him do I dare? Madame Butterfly don't blow it Chorus Calling Butterfly, Madame Butterfly That's the name he used to give me He's my man till the day I die Oh sweet Butterfly, so sweet Butterfly She's waiting He'll be back, I have faith in this love track Pinkerton: Pinkerton's the name Lieutenant Colonel Pinkerton! sir U.S. Navy I'm a bounder I married a Yankee girl But I went back to visit old Japan Where there she was, Cho Cho San Cho Cho San: Gotta have something to believe in My white honkey, I do miss him Someday soon he'll come around Just to stop my nervous breakdown Call me fool! Call me stupid! Bend my arrow kill this cupid Say it with me He'll be back I have faith in this love track Pinkerton: Cho Cho San My little wife My sweet butterfly That's the name I'll give her When I return Chorus Little sweet sweet Butterfly I hear him crowing faintly He thinks I'm just still sweet sixteen I guess I'll tease him gently Cho Cho San: Calling Madame Butterfly His angel plucked right from the sky Hide my baby in mystic places I feel the fear that I might die Right in his arms and embraces Softly kissing my eyelashes Got no right no right to doubt it Ain't no doubt no doubt about it Call me fool! Call me stupid! Bend this arrow kil this cupid I have faith I'll always pray My white honkey's here to stay Chorus Calling Butterfly, Madame Butterfly Butterfly, Butterfly have no fear I'll be back to wipe your tears Oh sweet Butterfly, so sweet Butterfly She's waiting I'll wait for him with unshakable faith He'll be back
