King Curtis – Memphis Soul Stew lyrics

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)
