Jim's Note: You could try singing this song with your tongue firmly planted in your cheek, but it would make it very hard to be understood. Suffice to say the song should not be taken seriously!


Baked Beans And Grits
© 1999, Jim Lesses. All Rights Reserved.

You say that you love me, and then you say that you donít,
And sometimes youíre easy, and sometimes you wonít.
Youíre leaving me colder than a broken down tap,
And youíre driving me crazy with this petulant crap.

CHORUS
So Iím warniní you, baby, Iím a-goiní to break,
And if you think Iím jokiní, well thatís your mistake.
Cos, your love to me is like baked beans and grits,
Itís nice when I get it, but it gives me the shits.

You donít like my music. Well, I donít like your smokes.
But why break my records, when I still have to choke?
And you donít like my cookiní, so you only eat greens,
And those fried green tomatoes and white navy beans.

BRIDGE
Well you kick my dog Scooter, when you think I donít look,
And you scrunch up the pages in my favourite book.
You break my guitar strings, now that takes the cake!
But you wonít stop me singing, when I make my escape.

So Iím takiní my guitar, and my recipeís too,
But my broken old records, Iím a-leaviní to you.
And Iím takiní old Scooter, and my old pickup truck,
And if you donít like it, take a lemon and ... suck.

Yes, Iím warniní you baby, Iím a-goiní to break,
And if you think Iím jokiní, well thatís your mistake.
Cos, your love to me is like baked beans and grits,
Itís nice when I get it, but...

Iím warniní you, baby, Iím a-goiní to break,
And if you think Iím jokiní, well thatís your mistake.
Cos, your love to me is like baked beans and grits,
Itís nice when I get it, but - let's call it quits.
