Betty Botter

Lyrics

(Traditional chant)

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–
that would 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!
