You
talk about the junk you do like you talk about climbing trees You
live the life of a little kid with bruises on your knees You
will never cop to the damage that's been done But
you will never stop 'cause it's too much fun Now
you want somebody to be your buttercup Good
luck finding your buttercup You

already sucked me dry can't, do it anymore honey You
roughed me up and made me cry now, you wanna borrow money You
say you feel like a failure and you wish you could take it all back But
honey I gotta tell ya it's, a little too late for that And
now you want somebody to be your buttercup Good
luck finding your buttercup One

reason after the other you're always feeling sad Maybe
you couldn't talk to your mother or stand up to your dad You
want my forgiveness and that I will give to you But
you got yourself into this mess and there's nothing I can do And
now you want somebody to be your buttercup Good
luck finding your buttercup The

first time I saw you you, made me melt The
last time I saw you you, hit below the belt You
might have a beautiful mouth you, might have beautiful eyes But
sooner or later it all goes south when you tell too many lies And
now you want somebody to be your buttercup Good
luck finding your buttercup Good
luck finding your buttercup Good
luck finding your buttercup
