Betty Botter Bought Some Butter

Song Video


Betty Botter bought bum butter
blah, said she, bum butters bitter.
but its blended in my batter
and its made my batter bitter.
If I blend some better butter
better than the bitter butter
it will make my bitter batter better.
Betty Botter blended better butter
better than the bitter butter
put it in the bitter batter
now the bitter batters better.

Betty Botter bought some butter,
But, she said, The butter's bitter;
If I put it in my batter
It will make my batter bitter.
But, a bit of better butter
Will make my batter better.

So, she bought a bit of butter
Better than her bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter
And the batter was not bitter.
So, 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.
