He's a big Southern guy with a funny smile
And he always seems to know
By looking right in your eye
Where you've come from and where you're going to go

He could race a car, play a guitar,
Or do the voice for a cartoon show
And you can see him on the silver screen
Or standing up, telling a joke about a ball moving slow

But he isn't gonna go to the show
Until he's got a bucket of soulfood food to go
You've got to understand: he's a soulfood man

Well he had figured it out, all about
How to play his guitar so slow
That he could play 'till the end of time
And all you would here him play is one note

But he better not start, 'cause he knows in is his heart
That the sound of the note would grow
And the people would block their ears
And glasses would crack, and the soulfood shack would explode

And there wouldn't be rice and beans
And Sonny couldn't bring on the bowl full of collard greens
You've got to understand: he's a soulfood man
You've got to understand: he's a soulfood man
