BUTTERFLY – Jason Mraz
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kengus

This refers to the acoustic version off the We Dance EP. And this is 
as close as I can get it. I put the chords I use at the end, so scroll 
down. Mraz likes to mix it up, so the strumming, for instance, changes throughout 
the song. Have fun.

Standard tuning
Capo on first fret

VERSE1
Em7                                                         Am7
   I’m taking a moment just imaginin’ that I’m dancin’ with you 
                                             Bm7
I’m your pole and all you’re wearing is your shoes. 
                                     Cmaj7
You got soul, you know what to do to turn me on until I write a 
B7            Em7                       *  **   Am7
song about you. And you have your own enga-ging style. 
                            ‘ ‘’Bm7
And you’ve got the knack to vivify. And you make my slacks 
                          Cmaj7
a little tight, you may unfasten them if you like 
              B7*
That’s if you crash and spend the night 

CHORUS
              Am7*            Bm7*
But you don’t fold, you don’t fade 
           Em7*                             Am7*
You’ve got everything you need, especially me 
Bm7*                  Em7*
Sister you’ve got it all 
             Am7*            Bm7*
You make the call to make my day 
        Em7*(E7sus2)
In your message say my name 
             Am7*          Bm7*                 Em7*(E7sus2)
Your talk is all the talk, sister you’ve got it all 

Am7*  Bm7*  Em7*(E7sus2)
Am7*  Bm7*  Em7* (Em7**)

VERSE2
                Am7*
Curl your upper lip up and let me look around 
Bm7*                           Em7*
   Ride your tongue along your bottom lip and bite down 
Cmaj7                             Fmaj7
 And bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch 
                    B7
Because they’re the perfect jumping off point of getting closer to your 

PRE-CHORUS
      Em7*
Butterfly 
                  Am7*
Well you float on by 
   Bm7*                      Em7*
Oh kiss me with your eyelashes tonight 
  Cmaj7                  Fmaj7
Or Eskimo your nose real close to mine 
          B7
And let’s mood the lights and finally make it right 

CHORUS (same as above)
But you don’t fold, you don’t fade, you’ve got everything you need 
Especially me 
Sister you’ve got it all 
You make the call to make my day 
In your message say my name 
Your talk is all the talk sister you’ve got it all 

You’ve got it all, you’ve got it all, you’ve got it all (2x) 
You’ve got it all, you’ve got it all 

BRIDGE
Am7                              Cmaj7
Doll I need to see you pull your knee socks up 
               Gmaj7                                  B7
Let me feel you up side down slide in slide out slide over here 

Climb in my mouth now child 

INTERLUDE (instrumental, scatting)
Em7* Am7* Bm7* Em7* Cmaj7 Fmaj7 B7 x2

PRE-CHORUS (same as above)
Butterfly, well you landed on my mind 
Damn right you landed on my ear and then you crawled inside 
Now I see you perfectly behind closed eyes 
I wanna fly with you and I don’t wanna lie to you 

CHORUS (same as above)
Cause I, cause I can’t recall a better days 
I’m coming to shine on the occasion 
You’re an open minded lady 
You’ve got it all 
And I never forget a face 
If I’m making my own 
I have my days 
Let’s face the fact here, it’s you that’s got it all 

CHORUS (same as above)
You know that fortune favours the brave 
Well let me get paid while I make you breakfast 
The rest is up to you, you make the call 
You make the call to make my day 
In your message say my name 
Your talk is all the talk, sister you’ve got it all 

I can’t recall a better day 
I’m coming to shine on the occasion 
You’re a sophisticated lady, oh you’ve got it all 
You’ve got it all, you’ve got it all, you’ve got it all (3x) 
You’ve got it all, you’ve got it all... 

OUTRO
      Am7* Bm7*                         Em7*
Butterfly, baby, well you’ve got it all

Hmm, you mean relative to capo on first fret? And still 79977? Sorry, I don't get it.
