Hi, i'm looking for teh words to a girl scout camp song. I think it's called _blue bottle_ and part of it goes

It's got one breath from a butterfly, One ray from the sun
and lots and lots of laughter from little children's fun
Please do not uncork it Simply put it right on it's way
and i thought you might like your own summer's day
Put it on its way.

thanks,
cathy

I know this song as The Gift, and here are the lyrics I learned at camp:

I have a little present here for you
Inside this tiny bottle, so very small and blue.
Please do not uncork it, simply put it on away.
For inside there lies a summer's day.
Put it on away…

Now I'd be pleased if you didn't ask
Why I'd give this gift to you
I don't know myself, did it on a whim
As the thought came running through
Just want to make you happy in a summertime sort of way
And I thought you might like your own summer's day.
Put it on away…
Can you read the writing on this tiny bottle's wall
I know it is quite small
But I can read it all
It says she who is a-reading me
Is looking right at my side
And might be sort of interested
In what lies inside
There'll be one breath of a butterfly and one ray from the sun
And lots and lots of laughter from little children's fun
So don't you dare uncork it, 'cause everything will get away
And I want you to have your own summer's day.
Put it on away…

(I don't know what the etiquette for dragging up ancient posts is, but figured this song was worth adding to the collection). Anyone know origins?

Refreshing old threads is a good thing, Cosmos - especially if you have lyrics to add or questions to ask. I've never come across this song, so I'd like to hear more. There's a YouTube video here:
And another:

The Ultimate Camp Resource has these lyrics:



Blue Bottle (Summer's Day)

I have a little present her for you
Inside this tiny bottle so very small and blue
Please do not uncork it, simply put it on away
For inside there lies a summer's day
Put it on away

I'd be pleased if you didn't ask why I gave this gift to you
I don't know myself, did it on a whim
As the thought came running through
I just wanted to make you happy
In a summertime sort of way
And I thought you might like your own summer's day
Put it on away

Can you read the writing on this tiny bottle's wall?
I know that it's quite small, but I can read it all
It says "she who is reading me is looking right at my side
And might be sort of interested at what lies inside
There'll be one breath of a butterfly
One ray from the sun
And lots and lots of laughter from little children's fun
Don't you dare uncork me, or everything will fly away"
I just wanted you to have a summer's day

A camp I worked at, Northern Hills camp in Eagle river, WI. A camp counselor named Schroeder (Melanie Ruda) wrote this song for Northern Hills..girl scout camp based out of Milwaukee council. It was the late 70's. she titled it THE GIFT.
