Characters singing


Pablo: I've got you! I've got you! I've got you! We almost had it...almost caught it...we almost netted that beautiful butterfly, but then it fluttered away in the desert sky, and now I'm just so disappointed, I could cry.

Tyrone and Uniqua: 'Cause we have been chasing that butterfly all up and down below and high-dee-di-dee-di-dee-di-dee-di!

Pablo: All through the desert...through the desert...all through the canyons...and rivers...we searchify. Beautiful dear gold butterfly...but now you're gone, and I'm a really, really, really, really disappointed guy.

Tyrone and Uniqua: Disappointed guy...

Pablo: Yes, I am a disappointed, disappointed guy!

Tyrone and Uniqua: Disappointed guy...

Pablo: Yes, because I really want to catch the butterfly!

Tyrone and Uniqua: As for us, we're just feelin' sore!

Uniqua: And we don't wanna follow a butterfly anymore!

Tyrone: Sore, yes, we're sore, and our stagecoach has been demolished.

Uniqua: Sore, yes, we're sore. I wish bug hunting was abolished.

Pablo: Wait! Wait! Look! Oh, I see something flying over there now!

Uniqua: Where?

Tyrone: There!

Pablo: Yes! Oh, I see golden wings up in the air now!

All: Go! Go! Go!

Uniqua: Oh, yes, I love that pesky little critter!

Pablo: Butterfly, this isn't over yet, 'cause I can see you and I bet that I will catch you with my net, you're sure the thing I came to get!
