Oh yeah

Yeah, she's gotta have soul
Or it won't feel right 
Well, just plain, clean and simple  Wrapped up nice n' tight 

And homegrown and down-home, that makes one
Cookin' up that old time, long lost recipe for me, woh

It's gettin' hard to find
 Guess it ain't hip enough now
You take an average guy, he can't identify, uh
And there's a short supply of her fine, fine stuff 

 Lemme get on, lemme get on, lemme get on some of that
 Shake it up, bake it up nice, uh
 Lemme get on, lemme get on, lemme get on all that
I so love my baby's poundcake 

 Homegrown and down-home, ooh yeah, that's the one
 Still cookin' with that old time, long lost recipe 

 Lemme get on some of that
Uh ah, uh ho, uh ah, uh ho
I want some of that, uh ah, uh ho
 Gimme some of that, uh ah, uh ho ow

Oh, got some real fine pound, poundcake, ah

I've been out there  Tried a little bit of everything 
But it's all sex without love
I found the real thing is poundcake 

 Homegrown and down-home, yeah that's the one
 Still cookin' with that old time, long lost recipe, yeah woo
She's down-home and down-home, oh, that's my woman 

 Gimme some of that of
Uh ah, uh ho
Uh ah, uh ho
 Lemme hold that
Uh ah, uh ho, uh, uh ah, uh ho

 Homegrown and down-home, woo
Come on babe
 Gimme some of that, gimme some of that
Homegrown, way down-home, yeah

Uh ah, uh ho, yeah, gimme some of that, woo
C'mon baby
Homegrown, homegrown, down-home
