Somewhere out in a flower field
A man is changing the world
He’s going to make it a better place for
All the little boys and girls
He doesn’t talk ‘cause he never learned
And no one’s sure where he lives
Most of the planet doesn’t know
Just how much this little man gives
He doesn’t work so he won’t get paid
He only wants to collect
He spends his days catching butterflies
In his gigantic bug-catching net

He takes them all
Two by two puts every one
In red balloons

They float above the grass and trees
It’s hard to say where they’ll stop
Red balloons filled with butterflies
Going up and up and up
On the other side of the world
There’s people fighting a war
They pop balloons and see butterflies
And they don’t want to fight anymore
They take their aim
And bullets zoom
And every one
Hits red balloons
And armies, too,
Have won the fight
With red balloons

Now There’s no fighting
And the soldiers are shaking hands
Little man can
Make the world work
And all it took was red balloons!
