Lyric "Miss Butter's Lament"

Waiting around for the first breath of spring
Nobody else seems to care
She waits patiently for the knowledge that she will
Have so much to give to someone
Waiting around for the knock at the door
Gentleman callers beware
Hoping to see all the flowers and candy he’s offered her
In every dream she’s ever had
Mmmmmmm
She don’t mind all the waiting around for someone to come along
Knows she’s about to be found before too long
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
She don’t mind all the waiting around for someone to come along
Knows she’s about to be found before too long
Waiting around for the first breath of spring
She never noticed the snow on the ground
Spring never made it
Somebody delayed it
For her again
And the year before
And the year before
And the year before
And the year before
And the year before
