Gee your mom looked 
Like shit last night 
Hope that Tinkertoy 
Boyfriend tonks her right 
Then again I could never tell 
A fist fight from fun 
Maybe I've never really known anyone

Just sat still and spit in the fire 
I thought I might strangle you 
But I couldn't find a wire 
You've never been the type 
To make your heart clear 
Lest someone overhear

Words drown in your martini glass 
Entire sentences slowly drunken up 
But before they slipped away 
I swore I could've heard them say 
You wanted me to be your buttercup 
Say you need me to be your buttercup

The party reached a feverish pitch 
Good time soldiers 
Drunk and in a ditch 
Infidelity a bomb that went off 
That left the world 
To swerve and cough

Stepped over bodies 
Strewn like shipwrecks 
Love's last call 
Warning puke reflex 
Faith is for that frozen few 
That never met 
Someone quite like you

Words drown in your martini glass 
Entire sentences slowly drunken up 
But before they slipped away 
I swore I could've heard them say 
You wanted me to be your buttercup 
Say you need me to be your buttercup

Fish don't know they're short 
They just feel sideways 
And words to you are 
Just the same they shy away 
When legs and limbs are all tucked in 
You pull me close to you come night 
And I'm just like a fleshy fruit 
And hung from the bowl of your side 
Your lips may not sell or say 
What your eyes give away 
You're sweet as pumpkin pie

I take the keys 
From your hand that stutters up 
Let the night air sober you up 
Driving home you make me pull over 
You press my hand gently 
As a four leaf clover

You say sweetheart 
I'm a foolish man 
I'm ornery and I'm stubborn 
Like my coffee from a can 
But without you I would 
Shrivel up and die 
Won't you be my 
Won't you be my 
Won't you be my...

Words drown in your martini glass 
Entire sentences slowly drunken up 
But before they slipped away 
I swore I could've heard them say 
You wanted me to be your buttercup 
Say you need me to be your buttercup

Tell me you need me 
To be your buttercup 
Your buttercup 
Ducks, shnucks, shlucks, shucks
