Meat Man

Composed by Mack Vickery
Recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, 1973

They call me the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am

I got jaws like a bear trap
Teeth like a razor
Got a Maytag tongue
With a sensitive taste
I was born in Texas
A land of beef
Never cared much for greens
Ya' oughta heard I like meat

I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
Whoa, I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am

I been down to Macon, Georgia
I ate the furs off a Georgia peach
Plucked me a chicken in Memphis
Mama, I still got feathers in my teeth
I ate a pound of pork Huntsville
From a fine Alabama hog
I went to Dallas, Texas
Got no love, my baby left me
Fed the bone to a Louisiana dog

I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
Whoa, I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
Give it to me now!


Well, it don't make me no difference
Just as long as it's good meat!
Killer ain't got no preference
If it's dog or rat, I eat
It don't a-have to be U.S. Governmental proof
With stamp a-no Grade 'A' seal
As long as it lean, it full-a protein
I'm gonna damn sho' get my fill

'Cos I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
Whoa, I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am

I got jaws like a bear trap
Teeth like a razor
Got a Maytag tongue
With a sensitive taste
I was born in Texas
A land of beef
Give it to me honey
'Cos I sure like meat

I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
Whoa, I'm the meat man
Ya oughta see me eat, m'am
Yeah!

(Meat man, meat man)...

Meat man you mother!
