Let’s make it take all day
Let’s make it last all night
How I wish you would stay
Now it looks like you might
Maybe we could play a little tune in the moonlight
And if it takes all day, you’d better spend the night

We’ll get some hickory wood
Let it start to soak
They say the oldest trees
Make the sweetest smoke
Then we’ll light a fire
Until it glows
On a bed of coals
We’re gonna roast it slow

Let’s make it take all day
Let’s make it last all night
How I wish you would stay
Now it looks like you might
Maybe we could play a little tune in the moonlight
And if it takes all day, you’d better spend the night

Here’s some salt and spice
Go on, rub it up
Bring on the Holy Ghost
We’re sure to have enough
Bring that Bible down, that stuff is old and good
Strays be coming around from the whole neighborhood

We’ll make it take all day
We’ll make it last all night
How I wish you would stay
Now it looks like you might
Maybe we could play a little tune in the moonlight
And if it takes all day, you’d better spend the night

Tomatoes right, molasses slow
Call in heat, let the lava flow
Put on the fire, put off the bone
We’ll be eating swine ‘til the cows come home

Let’s make it take all day
Let’s make it last all night
How I wish you would stay
Now it looks like you might
Maybe we could play a little tune in the moonlight
And if it takes all day, you’d better spend the night
