Songtekst

[Pinkerton:]
Back in Nagasaki
I got married to Cio Cio San
That was her name back in those days
And I was her man

I'm going back to visit her
She got a problem
She got a little Cio Cio

Cio Cio San was her name
And this is her tale of woe
Take it away, Cio Cio

[originele versie in Italiaans]
Un bel di, vedremo
Levarsi un fil di fumo
Sull'estremo con fin del mare
E poi la nave appare
Poi la nave bianca

[Cho Cho San:]
Today's the day I see clear
A tiny thread of smoke appears
Where blue skies border on the ocean
And a ship is set in motion

All the while I sing this song
I see a dot on the horizon
Growing bigger every second
Gleaming white in my direction

Who on earth can it be
Coming up the path for me?
What on Earth will he say?
Shall I run to him or run away?

Freaking out, he's come to get me
My feet are stuck and just won't let me
Run to him, do I dare?
Madam Butterfly, don't blow it

(Calling Butterfly, Madam Butterfly)
That's the name he used to give me
He's my man 'till the day I die

(Oh, sweet Butterfly, so sweet Butterfly
She's waiting)
He'll be back
I have faith in this love track

[Pinkerton:]
Pinkerton's the name
Lieutenant Colonel Pinkerton, sir!
U.S. Navy
I'm a bounder
I married a Yankee girl
But I went back to visit old Japan
Where there she was, Cio Cio San

[Cho Cho San:]
Gotta have something to believe in
My white honky, I do miss him
Someday soon he'll come around
Just to stop my nervous breakdown

Call me fool, call me stupid
Bend my arrow, kill this cupid
Say it with me, he'll be back
I have faith in this love track

(Calling Butterfly, Madam Butterfly)
That's the name he used to give me
He's my man 'till the day I die

(Oh, sweet Butterfly, so sweet Butterfly
She's waiting)
He'll be back
I have faith

[originele versie in Italiaans]
Piccina mogliettina
Olezzo di verbena
I nomi che mi dava al suo venire

[Pinkerton:]
Cio Cio San
My little wife
My sweet butterfly
I still hear you
I'll give you when I return

[originele versie in Italiaans]
Tienti la tua paura

Little sweet, sweet Butterfly
I hear him crowing faintly
He thinks I'm still just sweet sixteen
I guess I'll tease him gently

Cho Cho San:
Calling Madam Butterfly
His angel plucked right from the sky
Hide my baby in strange places
I feel the fear that I might die

Right in his arms and his embraces
Softly kissing my eyelashes
Got no right, no right to doubt it
Ain't no doubt, no doubt about it

Call me fool, call me stupid!
Bend this arrow, kill this cupid
I have faith I'll always pray
My white honky's here to stay

(Call me Butterfly, Madam Butterfly)

Butterfly, Butterfly, have no fear
I'll be back to wipe your tears

(Oh, sweet Butterfly, so sweet Butterfly
She's waiting)
I will wait for him with unshakable faith
He'll be back

[[originele versie in Italiaans]]
E un po' per non morire
Al primo incontro;
Ed egli alquanto in pena
Chiamerà, chiamerà:
"Piccina mogliettina
Olezzo di verbena"

I nomi che mi dava al suo venire

He'll be back

L'aspetto!
