If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope,
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise.

If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope,
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise.

He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him

If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope,
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife-
I'm a hot knife if he's a pad of butter.
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need- never need another.

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife-
I'm a hot knife if he's a pad of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need- never need another.

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me)

(If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope,
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise)

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me)

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife-
I'm a hot knife if he's a pad of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need- never need another.

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me)

He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him...

    Not sure how to do it but someone needs to edit those lyrics cause they're wrong. 1) pat of butter, not pad 2) you can relax around me, not wild up. Geez
