About Butterfly

"Butterfly" is a pop song, written and recorded by the French singer-songwriter, Danyel Gérard (born Gerard Daniel Khertakian, 7 March 1939, Paris) in the late 1960s. It was initially a hit in the French language. In the early 1970s English language words were written, and Gerard recorded it again in the United States. In 1971 he also did German, Spanish and Italian versions. "Butterfly" was a very popular song internationally, selling over seven million copies. Many other musicians recorded it, both in instrumental and vocal versions. In the U. S., that list included Eydie Gormé, Goldie Hawn and Eddy Arnold. The single was Number 1 in Germany for fifteen weeks in summer 1971. It also reached #2 in South Africa. It reached Number 11 (and spent 12 weeks) in the UK Singles Chart in October 1971. Lack of further chart activity in the UK saw both singer and song branded as a one-hit wonder. It also appeared in the first compilation album put together specifically for telemarketing in the UK, K-Tel's 20 Dynamic Hits. It was a similar story in the U. S., where Gerard's single peaked at #78 in the Billboard Hot 100. In Germany he had some more songs in the charts, such as "Isabella" or "Meine Stadt".

Tu me dis, loin des yeux loin du cœur
Tu me dis qu'on oublie le meilleur
Malgré les horizons
Je sais qu'elle m'aime encore
Cette fille que j'avais surnommée

Butterfly, my Butterfly
Dans un mois je reviendrai
Butterfly, my Butterfly
Près de toi je resterai

L'océan c'est petit, tout petit
Pour deux cœurs où l'amour a grandi
Malgré ce que tu dis
Tu vois qu'elle m'aime encore
Cette fille que j'avais enlacée

Butterfly, my Butterfly
Dans un mois je reviendrai
Butterfly, my Butterfly
Près de toi je resterai

Notre amour est si grand, oui si grand
Que le ciel y tiendrait tout dedans
Malgré ce que tu dis
Je sais qu'elle m'aime encore
Cette fille que j'avais embrassée

Butterfly, my Butterfly
Dans un mois je reviendrai
Butterfly, my Butterfly
Près de toi je resterai

Butterfly, my Butterfly
Dans un mois je reviendrai
Butterfly, my Butterfly
Près de toi je resterai

Butterfly, my Butterfly
Dans un mois je reviendrai
Butterfly, my Butterfly
Près de toi je resterai
