The Hot Knife Songfacts says that according to an interview with New York magazine’s Dan Lee, Apple suspects the roots of the song lay in a Bach concert that she’d seen in New York, and the Supremes tune "Where Did Our Love Go?.” She explained the inspiration is the place where two different types of music, “crack together,” which has always given her “huge satisfaction.”

Hot Knife - Fiona Apple

If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen,
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen,
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him

If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen,
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife-
I'm a hot knife if he's a pat of butter.
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need- never need another.

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife-
I'm a hot knife if he's a pat of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need- never need another.

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me)

(If I'm butter - if I'm butter-
If I'm butter, then he's a hot knife,
He makes my heart a cinemascope screen,
Showing the dancing bird of paradise.)

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me)

I'm a hot knife- if I'm a hot knife-
I'm a hot knife if he's a pat of butter
If I get a chance, I'm gonna show him that
He's never gonna need- never need another.

(And you can, and you can, and you can wild up around me)

He excites me
Must be like a genesis of rhythm
I get feisty
Whenever I'm with him...
