​Miss Butter's Lament

This song is by Harry Nilsson and appears on the album Pandemonium Shadow Show (1967) and on the compilation album Personal Best: The Harry Nilsson Anthology (1995).

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

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
Like the year before
And the year before
And the year before
And the year before
And the year before
