Butter Fingers

 

Butter fingers couldn’t catch a cold

They dropped the mould when they made you

Cut the chord and just watched you fall

The parachute failed to pull through

But look at you now

Yeah just look at you now

Not a scar, not a scratch, not a mark

 

No-one would ever know now

No-one would ever guess how it all started

Tell your life story they’d laugh out loud

No-one would ever know now

 

You built a kingdom all of your own

A cardboard throne and a sea view

Spoilt the children then boiled their bones

Teach them to talk with their mouths full

Now the cat got her tongue

The vet bought her lungs

But her heart, oh her heart

No I couldn’t bear to part with that

 

No-one will ever know now

No-one will ever guess how it all started

Sell your life story they’ll laugh out loud

No-one will ever know now

No-one will ever know, nail down the lid it’s closed

No-one will ever know now
