Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 14 - The Butterfly Song (Splodgenessabounds)

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 14:-

Splodgenessabounds - The Butterfly Song

Here's a good 'un from 1980... If you've never heard this one before, then listen to it now... like me, you'll probably be singing and humming it for the rest of your life.

"Have you seen the butterfly, on the windowsill John (Windowsill John). The one I squashed last night, with my fingernail John (Fingernail John). I squashed his little head, his blood was green not red, so I left him (where'd you leave him?) On the windowsill John!"

Lyrics do not get much better than that!

Splodgenessabounds were/are an English punk group, and this song was released way back in 1980 as a triple A-side single (featuring a cover version of Two Little Boys, and Horse). My parents had it on vinyl, and have fond memories of listening, and singing along to it when I was very small.
