Marvelene's Kitchen

 

Marvelene's got her apron on

She put up her rings and the woodstove's hot

Go on and gitcha another cup of coffee

We'll gossip just a little, brag about great grandchildren

 

            Umm good things are cookin'

            In Marvelene's kitchen

            In Marvelene's kitchen

 

                        Chew and spit and take your fits on the backporch

                        Leave your screamin' and your shoutin' outside

                        Put your politics down the hall in that parlor

                        'Cause she's fixin' up some real good times

 

            Good things are cookin'

            In Marvelene's kitchen

            In Marvelene's kitchen

 

Man oh man what a sight to smell

All them homegrown veg'tables

Help yourself there's plenty left

Praise the Lord, Pass that good cornbread

I heard somebody say amen

 

            Umm good things are cookin'

            In Marvelene's kitchen

            In Marvelene's kitchen

 

(Bridge)

 

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

 

Well we might as well join 'em friends

Nobody here can lick 'em when

 

(Chorus)
