Greens In The Kettle Gal


Don't come 'round here
In that Ferrari
No baby don't you dare
Want folks to look at only you
You want them to stop and stare

But I'm a greens in the kettle gal
Don't serve 'em in a dish
Greens in the kettle gal
That's how I keep 'em warm
Greens in the kettle gal
Tattoos up and down my back
Greens in the kettle gal
Drinkin' Tecate on the porch

I see you smilin' at me boy
With those unatural shiny whites
Why your soul speaks to me boy
You ain't livin' your life right

Cuz I'm a greens in the kettle gal
Don't serve em in a dish
Greens in a kettle gal
That's how I keep 'em warm
Greens in the kettle gal
Tattoos up and down my back
Greens in the kettle gal
Drinkin' Tecate on the porch

I give up boy
Get over here
Take off those fancy clothes
I'll show you what a real man wants
I serve it spicy with a lot of love

I'm a greens in the kettle gal
Don't serve 'em in a dish
Greens in the kettle gal
That's how I keep 'em warm
Greens in the kettle gal
Tattoos up and down my back
Greens in the kettle gal
Drinkin' Tecate on the porch

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
