down south lyrics – 311

let me take you down south
hear it from the dover’s mouth
the rhythm will make you want to move your body
i had it once and never ever forgot it
feel the rhythm of rhapsody
your body moves in raw ecstasy
explosive eruption beyond compare

take my advice: don’t think twice
let me take you way down south

step back ’cause the funk is here and
the base is kickin’ straight to your ear, man
because it’s like that, so don’t talk back
and if you do, then you’re gonna get the back slap
down south, that’s an enigma
but to you, it’s a stupid dumb stigma
that’s right, it’s outta sight

let me tell you ’bout my baby
she loves me, i don’t mean maybe
she knows what i think and i don’t have to say it
i love her, so i don’t have to play it
we sit and drink in the sun
i raise my gl*ss and say she’s the one
cool breeze, light squeeze, life

take my advice: don’t think twice
let me take you way down south

step back, i’m about to get hectic
chalk it up as another dialectic
hard like a jam, smooth like a ballad
call it what you want but i call it sound salad
a salad grown in the garden of eden
seekin’ out pleasures like my boys in sweden
that’s right, the groove’s tight like
sit back just relax, let your mind unwind
pull your good thing close, let tranquility surround
psychedelic freak out taco funk frolic
grind fiend roots ‘core soul music, what have you
psychedelic freak out taco funk frolic
grind fiend roots ‘core soul music, what have you

step back and think about the topic of this song
strong innuendo, end over end goes your brain
i won’t say, it’s plain. figure it out, here’s a clue:
it’s about winding, grinding, finding that spot
that gets her hot, the joy of giving pleasure
is beyond measure
