The Lyrics

Dreamed I was a moth, it blows
Buh, buh, dah-dah-dah-dah, dah, bah-duh-duh
Flying's not fun when you're so
Buh, buh, dah-dah-dah-dah, dah, bah-duh-duh
Tiny a shoe can deal a death blow
Buh, buh, dah-dah-dah-dah, dah, bah-duh-duh
Ev'ry time I snacked on clothes
Buh, buh, ba-ee-ee-yah-yah
My brain would then tell me "That's old 'toon shows"
Boo! Buh, buh, dah-dah-dah-dah, dah, bah-duh-duh

Not a butterfly (boo-hoo-hoo-ooh)
Not a butterfly (it's true, afraid so, so blows)
It's true, afraid so, so blows
I would be pretty, that's a no
Boo! Buh, buh, dah-dah-dah-dah, dah, bah-duh-duh
Moths are ugly, at least IMO

Well, I flew around til I said "Light ho!" (boo!)
Flapped and flew around and I said "Light ho!" (boo!)
Yes, I flew around 'til I said "Light ho!"
And I knew where I just had to go
My brain said (buh, buh, doh-doh) way too late to brake, mind:

"That will turn your butt to smoke, man, don't you head the yellow glow
That will fry your ass, you dope, man, don't you head the yellow glow"

I can't help it, it's so beautiful! *ZAP!*
