"Butterflies Flit" is a Wiggles song from the Yummy Yummy album, which was first sung by Greg, then sung by Dorothy in Wiggly Safari, and Emma in her second TV series. The Wiggles wrote this song with Anthony's mum, Marie Field.




Butterflies flit from flower to flower
Dancing their happy way
Watching these beautiful colourful creatures
Is how I spend my day.
