singalong! hot knife by fiona apple

Fiona Apple is one of the coolest human beings on the planet. Aside from a brief stint in the centre of the spotlight in the late 90's (well-deserved), she has been just-under-the-radar incredible. I saw her play Central Park in New York a while back, and was blown away at how excellent her voice is live and her cool demeanour. She seems like she would be the best person to be friends with. Then, much later, she slipped into the recesses of my mind. Until this video popped up one day in my Facebook feed. It's glorious!



HOT KNIFE
by Fiona Apple

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.
