Gimme a Strip

You just sizzle
In the morning I’ve got to have you next to my toast and eggs
Toast and eggs
I’ve got to have you, if I have to like a dog I’ll beg
I’m begging for it
And in the afternoon I want you in between to pieces of bread
Let’s make a sandwich
At night when I sleep thoughts of you creep through my head
All night long

I wanna take you and soak you in my salty brine
And when you’re cured I’ll be sure you’re mine
I wanna lay you down and make you sizzle and pop
I wanna fry a whole pound ’cause I just can’t stop

Gimme a strip, gotta get a strip of you
Oh yeah, gimme a strip, gotta get a strip of you
Gimme a strip, a salty little strip of you
It’ll get me through, yeah
Gimme a strip, gotta get a strip of you

Everybody’s telling me that you’re no good for me
It’s just not healthy
They say my cholesterol shouldn’t be 373
That’s way too high
But how can you be wrong when your strong flavor feels so right?
The mouth wants what the mouth wants
You’re meaty and you’re greasy and you please me with every bite.
Tastes so good

I wanna lock you in a room and smoke you for days
Slice you thick or thin or in so many ways
I know you’re to blame for my insane behavior
But I’m a slave to your savory flavor

Gimme a strip, a salty little strip from you
Oh baby, gimme a strip, a fat meaty strip from you
It’s what I need baby, gimme a strip, a salty little strip from you
Oh yeah, gimme a strip, gotta get a strip from you

Some people say that you’ve got too much fat
But that doesn’t faze me ’cause you’re tasty like that
I’ve never been so sure about how I felt
The reason you’re not kosher is god wants you for himself
He’s a jealous god

Gimme a strip, I gotta get a strip from you
It’ll get me through now
Gotta get a strip, a tasty little strip from you
Oh yeah, I said gimme a strip, a fat little strip from you
Come on, I need it! Gimme a strip, gimme a strip from you
Oh, gimme a strip.
