| 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.
- In the episode "Bring Out Your Beast" of the new Cartoon Network show "Craig of the Creek", Craig was singing parts of the Li'l Butler opening theme song whilst cleaning the dishes.
