Butterflies all flutter up

And kiss each little buttercup at dawning

D   A7/6      D          A7/6     D          D7
If I had A - lad - din's lamp for on - ly a day

I'd make a wish and here's what I'd say

D                Em
Nothing could be finer 

        D         Bm7          E7  A7   D
Than to be in Carolina in the morn   - ing!
