Cedric2008 on monarch wings=flying like a monarch butterfly. am I right.A monarch butterfly is a large migratory orange and black butterfly that occurs mainly in North America. The caterpillar feeds on milkweed, using the toxins in the plant to render both itself and the adult unpalatable to predators. I think you're right. Don't expect songs to contain exact grammar construction. A lot of details can be ommited in favour of the rhyme.
Cedric2008can you paraphrase 'on birthday wonderings'?A birthday fuss, bustle or jumble.
And birthday wonderings = and questions (about getting older) that arise when one has a birthday
I want to put on faces: this has no real meaning. I hear this as "I want to try on different faces as one would try on different kinds of clothes"
Walk in the wet and cold: this just means what it says.
