VERSE 1

 

Noon Friday means just one thing:

 

Lunch out with the crew.

 

We loaded up in Joe’s car, yeah.

 

He asked:  Hey y’all, where to?

 

We did not hesitate to say:

 

“How about Barbeque?”

 

Off we go!

 

 

CHORUS

 

Lovin’ Barbeque.

 

Oh yeah.

 

Loving Barbeque.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Tarheels chop up their pork and

 

Vinegar gives extra zest..

 

Tennessee pulled pork

 

Is sweeter than the rest

 

We Texans know, beyond a doubt,

 

That beef brisket is the best.

 

Where’s my bibb?

 

 

CHORUS

 

Lovin’ Bar-B-Que.

 

Oh yeah.

 

Loving Bar-B-Que.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Now my baby took me

 

To see her folks

 

For the very first time.

 

So on the way

 

I scored a couple racks of ribs.

 

And we all got along just fine.

 

They were cool.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Lovin’ Barbecue.

 

Oh yeah.

 

Loving Barbecue.
