| An orphaned boy with sass and pep|
Got dropped off on our mansion step,
| We washed his face of dirt and leaves,|
And now he works here as our Jeeves,
| Oh, littlest butler,|
Oh, you're the butler who butlers our hearts,
| So mop the floor and dust the shelves|
And teach us lessons 'bout ourselves,
Li'l Butler that's you!
In the demo version, the lyric is "Oh, you're the butler who touches our hearts".
A Word From The Composer
"The Demo for the Lil' Butler theme!
I love cheesy sitcoms, so when the idea for Li’l Butler came up, I instantly started working on a theme song. The show is an unholy mix of Mr. Belvedere and Webster, so I tried to hit the same kind of dorky vibe!
Rebecca played the uke! Lyrics and [off-key] singing by me!"
- The song seems to be reminiscent of the theme to The Facts of Life.
- The opening notes sound similar to the ending theme to Megaman 3.
- This song's tune bears slight similarities to "The Jam Song".
- The line "And now he works here as our Jeeves" is a reference to the character of Reginald Jeeves from P.G. Wodehouse's series of stories.
- For unknown reasons, the audio of the theme is cut in some US airings of the episode.
