Buying Butter
(Getting Better, from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band)

I'm buying butter all the time

I use to get margarine at school
The people that fed us were cruel
They fed us old oil, that'd been on the boil
Pouring it on top of cold gruel

I've got to admit I'm buying butter
Pounds of butter all the time
(I won't buy the worst)
I've got to admit I'm buying butter
Pounds of butter since I've been nine

Me used to angry young man
Me frying up lard in a pan
Pretty absurd but I finally heard
It wasn't the best kind of brand

I used to be cruel to my stomach
I fed it all kinds of spreads the stores shoved
Man I was mean but since I damaged my spleen
I'm buying the best that I can

I've got to admit I'm buying butter
Pounds of butter all the time
(I won't buy the worst)
I've got to admit I'm buying butter
Pounds of butter since I've been nine
Buying so much butter all the time
