Today's special is Memphis Soul Stew
We sell so much of this, people wonder what we put in it
We gonna tell you right now
Give me about a half a teacup of bass
(bass riff)
Now I need a pound of fatback drums
(drum riff)
Now give me 4 tablespoons of boiling Memphis guitars
This goin' taste alright
(guitar riff)
Now just a little pinch of organ
(organ riff)
Now give me a half a pint of horn
(sax riff)
Place on the burner and bring to a boil
That's it, that's it, that's it right there.
Now beat, well.
(all instrumental hell breaks loose)
