lyrics

Makin’ Bacon
by Reggie Miles © 2012 All rights reserved

I used to play on the street for nickels and dimes
Hangin’ with ma homies and havin’ good times
Then a fine lookin’ lady took me by my hand
She said, come on Reggie, woncha be my man
She said I gotta cure for your blues and I ain’t fakin’
I wanna take you home and fry your bacon

She loves makin’ bacon
She loves makin’ bacon
She’ll do everything she can
To make you feel like a man
She said, come on over here honey
Slide your bacon in my pan

She said I’ve had them other boy’s sweet jelly rolls
They’d squeeze me and then leave me, blue and all alone
Then she cried, I need a man, cuz I’ve been achin’
And yearnin’ for a big ol’ salty slab of bacon
She’s avoidin’ sweets but she sure loves meat
She fries it nice ‘n’ crispy before she eats

She loves makin’ bacon
She loves makin’ bacon
She’ll do everything she can
To make you feel like a man
She said, come on over here honey
Slide your bacon in my pan

Got to her door round half past two
She was livin’ in a high top split level shoe
She had so many kids to my surprise
Cuz she’d been makin’ bacon with all them other guys
She said come right in, don’t make me beg
I wanna fry your bacon with a couple o’ my eggs

She loves makin’ bacon
Yes, she loves makin’ bacon
She’ll do everything she can
To make you feel like a man
She said come on over here honey
Slide your bacon in my pan

Maybe baby you may be sweet and oh so fine
You might want me to be yours so you can be mine
You may be lookin’ hot ‘n’ sassy with them big fine legs
But I don’t think I want my bacon mixed up with your eggs
I love good cookin’ but I ain’t lookin’, for no breakfast in bed
So, I guess, I’ll be bookin’

She loves makin’ bacon
She loves makin’ bacon
She’ll do everything she can
To make you feel like a man
Come on over here honey
Slide your bacon in my pan
