Butterflies in the sky, you can go twice as high. Just take a look, it's on one of those apps on your iPad, it's Reading Rainbow. Yeah, the song doesn't work so well with those lyrics, does it?

I bought an iPad while I was on vacation in Australia, but now I’m back in the States. However, my iPad’s autocorrect feature insists that I spell words with U.K. English instead of U.S. English.
