    "Poor Butterfly [From "the Big Show"]" Lyrics

    The Platters

    There's a story told of a little Japanese
    Sitting demurely 'neath the cherry blossom trees
    Miss Butterfly's her name
    A sweet little innocent child was she
    Till a fine young American from the sea
    To her garden came
    They met beneath the cherry blossoms every day
    And he taught her how to love the American way
    To love with a soul 'twas easy to learn
    Then he sailed away with a promise to return

    Poor Butterfly 'neath the blossoms waiting

    Poor Butterfly, for she loved him so
    The moments pass into hours
    The hours pass into years
    And as she smiles through her tears
    She murmurs low
    The moon and I
    Know that he'll be faithful
    I'm sure he'll come to me by and by
    But if he won't come back
    Then I'll never sigh or cry
    I just must die
    Poor Butterfly
