Sweet Potato Lyrics

ray charles with james taylor

sweet potato pie

 

oh lord i feel fine today

i'm walking on cloud nine today

i'm over that line today

happiness is finally mine today

i guess i'm just a lucky guy

and i'm prepared to tell you why

it's strictly on account of my

sweet potato pie

 

i'm the fellow that she loves the most

the main reason why she left the coast

she's my little girlzi?a

so much hotter that a jalape?o

tender like a night in june

sweeter than a honeymoon

brighter than a silver spoon

just as crazy as a loon

softer than a lullabye

deeper than the midnight sky

soulful as a baby's cry

my sweet potato pie

 

i used to see her around the neighborhood

i wonder how she grew up so good

she belonged to freddy and he was bad

and i never was ready to make him mad

i'm glad i had to wait awhile

a little bit too juvenile

i needed to refine my style

a silk suit and a crocodile smile

so let the whole damn world go by

'cause i just want to testify

from now on it's me and my

sweet potato pie
