Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Intro/Riff 1 (x8)

---> Play Intro/Riff 1 over:

Let me take you down south

Hear it from the dover's mouth

The rhythm will make you want to move your body

I had it once and never ever forgot it

Feel the rhythm of rhapsody

Your body moves in raw ecstasy

Explosive eruption beyond compare

---> Play Pre-Chorus over:

Take my advice don't think twice

Let me take you way down south

---> Play Intro/Riff 1 (x2)

---> Play Chorus over:

Step back 'cause the funk is here and

The base is kickin' straight to your ear man

Because it's like that so don't talk back

And if you do then you're gonna get the back slap

Down south that's an enigma

But to you it's a stupid dumb stigma

That's right it's outta sight

---> Play Chorus - Ending (x1)

---> Play Intro/Riff 1 over:

Let me tell you 'bout my baby

She loves me don't mean maybe

She knows what I think and I don't have to say it

I love her so I don't have to play it

We sit and drink in the sun

I raise my glass and say she's the one

Cool breeze light squeeze life

---> Play Pre-Chorus over:

Take my advice don't think twice

Let me take you way down south

---> Play Intro/Riff 1 (x2)

---> Play Chorus over:

Step back I'm about to get hectic

Chalk it up as another dialectic

Hard like a jam, smooth like a ballad

Call it what you want but I call it sound salad

A slald grown in the garden of Eden

Seekin' out pleasures like my boys in Sweden

That's right the grooves tight like

---> Play Chorus - Ending (x1)

---> Play Bridge 1 (x2)

---> Play Bridge 2 over:

Sit back just relax, let your mind unwind

Pull your good thing close, let tranquility surround

Psychedelic freak out taco funk frolic

Grind fiend roots 'core soul music what have you

---> Play Intro/Riff 1 (x2)

---> Play Chorus over:

Step back and think about the topic of this song

Strong innuendo end over end goes your brain

I won't say it's plain figure it out here's a clue

It's about winding, grinding, finding that spot

That get's her hot the joy of giving pleasure

Is beyond measure

---> Play Chorus - Ending (x1)

---> End on A5 (x022xx)
