The Butter Queen

The Butter Queen
Ridin’ in the back of a
’57 Cadillac
A ’57 Cadillac
On the 4th of July
The Butter Queen
Tossin’ out candy from a
’57 Cadillac
A ’57 Cadillac
On the 4th of July

And every kid in town goes home
In a sugar coma haze
Oh they love her in
A ’57 Cadillac

The Butter Queen
Smilin’ at the boys
As she rides by
She says “Hi”
On the 4th of July
The Butter Queen
Feelin’ kinda special
In the big parade
Aint nothin’ she’d trade
On the 4th of July

And tonight she just might kiss a boy
Under exploding skies
Oh they love her in
A ’57 Cadillac

The Butter Queen
She’s got dreams
In a ’57 Cadillac
A ’57 Cadillac
On the 4th of July
The Butter Queen, she wants to
Keep on riding
Doesn’t want it to end
Aint no chores to tend
On the 4th of July

And at the end of this parade she knows
Her life’s gonna be the same
But she loves it in
A ’57 Cadillac
But she loves it in
A ’57 Cadillac
