The Lyrics

I ran out of the butter now, I ate sandwiches with just jam
I have to go clean out the fridge now, forgot that I had this really old cake, ice cream and ham
I gotta go to the store now, oh just to get some more butter
Go around the stores and none have it now so I go borrow some from my interesting neighbors
From my interesting neighbors-Fer sure!

Oh, at last I've got what I want- the butter
The butter, the butter, you bet
Oh, at last I've got what I need-the butter
The butter, the butter, you bet
I'll guard it with my life
And then I'll cut it with a knife

And then I dropped the butter on the floor, oh no!
The tub just fell right over, and it spilled butter, I know
I tried to get it but I fell right on my butt
The ants will have a heyday, oh and so will my mutt

I don't really care about the floor now
I just want that yummy butter
It will be some good stuff for my dinner
Dinner

Oh, I gotta clean it all up- the butter
The butter, the butter, you bet
Oh, it stinks to clean it all up-the butter
The butter, the butter, you bet
I'll guard it with my life
And then I'll cut it with a knife

There's some still left in the tub
I could still use it, it looks clean
My dog just ate it all up
Well, I just think that was real mean
Eating the butter
My neighbors must have more

I'd better get it, and explain now
And I got more from my neighbors right now
I'd better get it, and explain now
And I got more from my neighbors right now

Neighbors are still laughin' at my story, I can still hear them
But who cares, I'm so eager to eat that great butter right here once again
I know that I'm now eating all my food, my kitchen still looks messy, it's true
But it makes me feel so good, butter improves all my food, now as I chew.

And when the tub's completely empty
I will find more, you see
And I want my dinner to be
Buttery.

Oh, I gotta eat it all up- the butter
The butter, the butter, you bet
Oh, it's good to eat it all up-the butter
The butter, the butter, you bet
I'll guard it with my life
And then I'll cut it with a knife

Very good, though I got lost a few times trying to sing this over TOS.
