BUTTERCUPS

Words and music by Idlewilde

MET A SOUTHERN GAL NAMED SALLY JEAN

SUGAR AND SPICE IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN

I MADE A DATE TO SEE HER AT THE SWIMMIN' HOLE

HER DADDY IS A PREACHER MAN BLESS MY SOUL

 

SHOW ME THEM BUTTERCUPS

GROWING ROUND THE TREES

PRETTY FIELD OF GREEN AND GOLD

BLOWING IN THE BREEZE

 

SHE SHOWED UP DRESSED LIKE A LITTLE FANDANGO

I SAID, "HOW DO YOU SWIM WITH ALL OF THAT MOJO?"

SHE SAID, "WHERE WE'RE GOING DON'T NEED NO SWIM FINS"

"YOU JUST SIT RIGHT THERE AND GET DOWN TO YOUR SKIN SKINS"

 

SHOW ME THEM BUTTERCUPS

GROWING ROUND THE TREES

PRETTY FIELD OF GREEN AND GOLD

BLOWING IN THE BREEZE

 

JUST LIKE SHE READ MY MIND

LOOK FOR SOMETHING SWEET

I JUST DON'T GIVE A DAMN LORD

WHO CAN SEE?

 

CAME UP CLOSE I SAID, "LET'S BEGIN"

PUT A SHINY LITTLE BUTTERCUP UNDER MY CHIN

TOOK A LOOK DOWN BY THE SWIMMIN' HOLE

SAW A TINY LITTLE TAT COLORED GREEN AND GOLD

 

SHOW ME THEM BUTTERCUPS

GROWING ROUND THE TREES

PRETTY FIELD OF GREEN AND GOLD

BLOWING IN THE BREEZE

 

SHOW ME THEM BUTTERCUPS

GROWING ROUND THE TREES

PRETTY FIELD OF GREEN AND GOLD

BLOWING IN THE BREEZE

 

SHOW ME THEM BUTTERCUPS
