ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Memphis Soul Stew

ARETHA FRANKLIN
"Memphis Soul Stew"

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

Now I need a pound of fatback drums

Now give me four tablespoons of boiling Memphis guitars
This goin' taste alright

Now just a little pinch of organ

Now give me a half a pint of horn

Place on the burner and bring to a boil
That's it, that's it, that's it right there.
Now beat, well.
