Without butterflies the world will have few flowers
So grow your wings and fly
Feed the plants and float by the river
And we’ll be here by your side

Make great choices and take big risks
if theyre good for you and the rainforest
Sing really loud and don’t be afraid
Cause You are the stuff of which butterflies are made


Hope hope hope for the flowers
transform, embrace, and realize your power
el bosque le necesita
para vivir (the forest needs you to survive) (2x)

sometimes the pile that everyones a climbin up
seems like the shiniest thing
but look in the eyes of the others you been stepping on
and wake to the light of all beings


(chorus 3 times)
