lyrics

Slow Boil
(c) 2013 Pamela Cardullo Ortiz

Not too slow and not too hot
Never give her all you got
Stir it a little, but not a lot
Don’t use all that fuel,
Careful children, not too fast
Got to make the sweetness last
Nothing foreign, nothing new
Please don’t kick that mule.

CHORUS:
If a little sweetness is your goal
Simmer ‘til it just begins to roll
Otherwise you just might lose control
You got to keep it at a very slow boil.

Canebrake’s rustling loud tonight
Eerie in the red moonlight
Strange things mixing out of sight
Hold onto what you got
Sweet thing sour mighty fast
If you don’t respect the past
Bless the ones who take a chance
There’s trouble in the pot.

Come here sugar, see what I got
Sticky sweet for you
Pulsing, rising in the pot
Keeping it hot for you
I will be your sugar daddy
I’ll always be true
If you’ll be my sugar bun
Just a pinch will do.
