Hot Knife
Fiona Apple Lyrics


If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise
He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

(I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
(I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter)
(If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
(He's never gonna need another, never need another)

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him

I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife
I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need another, never need another

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife
I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need another, never need another

I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife
I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need another, never need another

He excites me
Must be like the genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him

(I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
(I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter)
(If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
(He's never gonna need another, never need another)

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

(I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
(I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter)
(If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
(He's never gonna need another, never need another)

If I'm butter, if I'm butter
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife
He makes my heart a cinema scope
He's showing the dancing bird of paradise

(I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
(I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter)
(If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
(He's never gonna need another, never need another)

(I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
(I'm a hot knife, he's a pad of butter)
(If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
(He's never gonna need another, never need another)

If I'm butter, if I'm butter,
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

If I'm butter, if I'm butter,
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him

If I'm butter, if I'm butter,
If I’m butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife,
I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter.
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need another, never need another.

If I'm butter, if I'm butter (I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
If I’m butter, then he's a hot knife (I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter)
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen (If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
Showing the dancing bird of paradise (He's never gonna need another, never need another)

If I'm butter, if I'm butter (I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
If I’m butter, then he's a hot knife (I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter)
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen (If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
Showing the dancing bird of paradise (He's never gonna need another, never need another)

He excites me
Must be like the genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him.

If I'm butter, if I'm butter (I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
If I’m butter, then he's a hot knife (I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter)
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen (If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
Showing the dancing bird of paradise (He's never gonna need another, never need another)

If I'm butter, if I'm butter (I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
If I’m butter, then he's a hot knife (I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter)
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen (If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
Showing the dancing bird of paradise (He's never gonna need another, never need another)

I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife,
I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter.
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need another, never need another.

I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife,
I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter.
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need another, never need another.

He excites me
Must be like the genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him.

[7x]
If I'm butter, if I'm butter (I'm a hot knife, I'm a hot knife)
If I’m butter, then he's a hot knife (I'm a hot knife, he's a pat of butter)
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen (If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that)
Showing the dancing bird of paradise (He's never gonna need another, never need another)

hail satan

if you just looked at the lyrics to this, you'd think it's a simple love song, but between the drums and her delivery it just has this almost frightening energy to it... like she can't decide if she wants to sleep with this guy or eat him alive. I love it.

White Tigress

Love your posting name and your comment. Well met. xxxooo

defaultc00kies

The said guy reminds me a lot of a certain Paul Thomas Anderson, her ex boyfriend directing the video. They had a very intense relationship and that cinemascope reference in the lyrics...

Rowan B

@javi I just thought it was an artistic choice. I really have no idea if it was or not :)

Rowan B

@javi @2:55 the last layer comes in. THe last word said in the song is 'you'

javi

@Rowan B where does it change to “you”?? I don’t hear it

This is something between a playful children song and chants in a witches' ceremony.

Isaac Kwiatkowski

You'd be surprised how many "children's songs" actually ARE witches' chants...our few remaining vestiges of pagan tradition fly under the radar as innocuous kids' games.

Owen Price

Sigh... here goes another day of listening to Fiona Apple over and over.

T. R. Parsons

Every single day... and night. ;)
