BUTTERBEAN (Kate Pierson / Fred Schnieder / Keith Strickland / Cindy Wilson / Ricky Wilson) The B-52's - 1983 Yeah, if you go down to Athens, G.A. And you're driving in your car You won't get very far You hear people shoutin' out What's that? Butterbean! Yeah! Gramps and grannies Kids in their teens Junkyard dogs and campus queens Yeah, everybody likes butterbeans Don't you wait, don't you linger Butterbean will slip through your fingers Pass me a plate full I'll be grateful 1-2-3-4 Pick 'em, pull 'em, put on the steam That's how we fix butterbeans (Pick 'em pod by pod by pod) Pick 'em, pull 'em, put on the steam That's how we fix butterbeans (Yeah, make 'em jump outta the pot) Come here, you butterbean, you Come on! Butterbean, butterbean Butterbean, butterbean Butterbean, butterbean Butterbean, butterbean Butterbean grows on the vine Some people are fat, some people are lean But I want you to show me the person Who doesn't like butterbeans Yay! Well, you can have your yams You can have your collard greens But if you want to please little ol' me You better fix butterbeans Don't you wait, don't you linger Butterbean will slip through your fingers Pick 'em, pull 'em, put on the steam That's how we fix butterbeans (Pick 'em pod by pod by pod) Pick 'em, pull 'em, put on the steam That's how we fix butterbeans (Pick 'em for me now, pick 'em for me now) (Contributed by David Roberson - March 2005)
