  • My baby likes buttered popcorn
    He likes it greasy
    And sticky
    And gooey
    And salty
    I said what do you like
    He says you know what I like
    I like buttered popcorn

    He took me to a show
    He said he wanted some more
    I said kiss me please
    He said after I eat

    I said what do you like
    He says you know what I like
    I like buttered popcorn

    For breakfast, lunch and a dinner too
    He eats buttered popcorn
    Well it worries me so
    I don't know what to do
    When I asked him what was happenin' in the world today
    He said more butter, more butter, more butter, more

    My baby likes buttered popcorn
    He likes it greasy
    And sticky
    And gooey
    And salty
    I said what do you like
    He says you know what I like
    I like buttered popcorn

    For breakfast, lunch and a dinner too
    He eats buttered popcorn
    Well it worries me so
    I don't know what to do
    When I asked him
    What was happenin' in the world today
    He said more butter, more butter, more butter, more

    My baby likes buttered popcorn
    He likes it greasy
    And sticky
    And gooey
    And salty
    I said what do you like
    He says you know what I like
    I like buttered popcorn Writer/s: BARNEY ALES, BERRY GORDY JR, BERRY JR GORDY
