G 
Gee your mom looked
     C
Like shit last night 
G 
Hope that Tinkertoy 
C 
Boyfriend tonks her right 
G 
Then again I could never tell
  C  
A fist fight from fun
      Em                          C
Maybe I've never really known anyone
G C 
Just sat still and spit in the fire 
G 
I thought I might strangle you
     C
But I couldn't find a wire 
G 
You've never been the type 
C 
To make your heart clear 
Em C 
Lest someone overhear
D C G D F G D 
Words dro-own in your martini glass
        F        C
Entire sentences slowly drunken up
    G
But before they slipped away
          A
I swore I could've heard them say
           D     A             G
You wanted me to be your buttercup
        D          A             G
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
    Em
You press my hand gently
     G
As a four leaf clover
     D
You say sweetheart
      C
I'm a foolish man
    D
I'm ornery and I'm stubborn
        C
Like my coffee from a can 
D 
But without you I would 
C 
Shrivel up and die 
G 
Won't you be my 
Em 
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
