Would anyone have lyrics and (shooting for the moon) English translation of an Italian song called "Leggenda". This was recorded by Harry Nilsson in 1967 but not released until circa 1971, and then only in Italy as the B side to "Per Chi" (an Italian version of Badfinger's "Without You". It was not released anywhere else until 2013 on a Nilsson box set, and the booklet refers to it as an Italian folk song about someone who likes butterflies, and learns that to collect them he has to kill them.
