Little Flutterby / Petit Papillon

Though neither etymologists nor entomologists support this theory, I believe the word was originally Flutterby, and got spoonerized into Butterfly

Lyrics
Little Flutterby

Pretty little flutterby, flutter by.
Kiss my cheek and flutter by.

You come upon a sunny day,
And turn October onto May.
I smile to see you flutter by,
And wish that I had wings to fly.

Pretty little flutterby, flutter by.
Kiss my cheek and flutter by.

Some, they chase you with a net
To try to end your flutter-flight.
Some, they would to pin you try,
But I would watch you flutter by.

Pretty little flutterby, flutter by.
Kiss my cheek and flutter by.

Kiss my cheek and shyly fly.
I will watch you flutter by.
Yes, I will watch you fly each day
Till some grey wind take you away.

Pretty little flutterby, flutter by.
Kiss my cheek and flutter by.
 
Petit Papillon

Joli petit papillon, papillonne.
Baise ma joue, et papillonne.

Tu viens dun jour ensoleillé,
Et fais d'octobre le mois de mai.
Ton gai envol me fait sourire,
Et battre les ailes, en vain, pour suivre.

Joli petit papillon, papillonne.
Baise ma joue, et papillonne.

Certains te chassent avec filets,
Ton gai envol pour arrèter,
D'autres veulent t'épingler,
Moi, jaime mieux te voir voler.

Joli petit papillon, papillonne.
Baise ma joue, et papillonne.

Baise ma joue, et envoles-toi.
Je te suis des yeux, avec joie.
Et je te suivrais tout le temps,
Jusqu'à-ce que je te perde au vent.

Joli petit papillon, papillonne.
Baise ma joue, et papillonne.
