Betty Botter bought some butter; “But,” said she, “The butter’s bitter. If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter.” But a bit of better butter will make my bitter batter better.

Copper Coffee Pot
All I want is a proper cup of coffee,
Made in a proper copper coffee pot
I may be off my dot
But I want a cup of coffee

If I can’t have a proper cup of coffee
In a proper copper coffee pot
I’ll have a cup of tea.
