Five Little Butterflies

Five little butterflies by the door.
One flew away, then there were four.

Four little butterflies by the tree.
One flew away, then there were three.

Three little butterflies up in the blue.
One flew away, then there were two.

Two little butterflies out in the sun.
One flew away, then there was one.

One little butterfly now all alone.
She was so lonely, she flew home.
