Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Butterfly (Acoustic) by Jason Mraz   Capo 3
From the Album "We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things"
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKc0Z9EoH3A)
Be sure to listen to the song to learn the strum pattern. Jason Mraz likes to syncopate his lyrics with a
rhytmic guitar strum and this specific acoustic version takes liberties during the held chords.
The chord C#m7* specifies that the chord should be played on the higher bar chord if possible (Fret 11)
Have fun with it!
(Sidenote, this version's chorus meshes really well with "Just the Two of Us" by Bill Withers)

[Verse 1]
C#m7                                                     F#m7
I'm taking a moment just imaginin' that I'm dancin' with you
                                             G#m7
I'm your pole and all you're wearing is your shoes
                                      F#m7                      G#7        C#m7
You got soul, you know what to do to turn me on until I write a song about you
                      G#m7      F#m7
And you have your own engaging style
                             G#m7
And you've got the knack to vivify
                                                F#m7
And you make my slacks a little tight, you may unfasten them if you like
               G#7
That's if you crash and spend the night

[Chorus 1]
              F#m7            G#m7
But you don't fold, you don't fade
            C#m7                           F#m7
You've got everything you need, especially me
G#m7                 C#m7
Sister you've got it all
             F#m7            G#m7
You make the call to make my day
        C#m7           G#m7
In your message say my name
                     F#m7  G#m7                 C#m7  G#m7
Your talk is all the talk, sister you've got it all

[Instrumental]

[Verse 2]
                F#m7                         G#m7
Curl your upper lip up and let me look around
                            C#m7                    G#m7
Ride your tongue along your bottom lip and bite down
Amaj7                            Dmaj7
And bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch
                     G#7
Because they're the perfect jumping off point of getting closer to your

[Pre-Chorus 1]
          C#m7
Butterfly
                  F#m7
Well you float on by
    G#m7                        C#m7  G#m7
Oh kiss me with your eyelashes tonight
    Amaj7                Dmaj7
Or Eskimo your nose real close to mine
          G#7
And let's mood the lights and finally make it right

[Chorus 2]
              F#m7            G#m7
But you don't fold, you don't fade
            C#m7                           F#m7
You've got everything you need, especially me
G#m7                 C#m7
Sister you've got it all
             F#m7            G#m7
You make the call to make my day
        C#m7           G#m7
In your message say my name
                     F#m7  G#m7                 C#m7  G#m7
Your talk is all the talk, sister you've got it all

              F#m7 G#m7
You've got it all,
              C#m7
you've got it all
             F#m7 G#m7
You've got it all,
              C#m7 C#m7*
you've got it all

[Bridge]
F#m7                             C#m7
Doll I need to see you pull your knee socks up
                G#m7                                      G#7
Let me feel you up side, down slide, in slide, out slide, over here
N.C.
Climb in my mouth now child

Dammit you landed on my ear and then you crawled inside
Amaj7                    Dmaj7

I wanna fly with you and I don't wanna lie to you

You know that fortune favors the brave

Well let me get paid while I make you breakfast
                 F#m7 G#m7          C#m7
The rest is up to you, you make the call

You make the call to make my day
        C#m7           G#m7
