Slow Food

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the live album In the Hills of California (2004).

People want that slow food
Two minutes and they grouch
But give me ham baked all day long
And help me to the couch
Help me to the sofa
Put the quiet music on
I will lie and think about that ham
Long after it is gone.

I want some slo-o-o-o-ow food.

I don't want no food with cute names
No neon on a sign
A man can't live on advertising slogans
And conceptual design
Let somebody else go surf and turf
Someone else go carry out
Me, I want my food to know itself
Before it knows my mouth.

I want some slo-o-o-o-ow food
With all the love cooked in.

Why don't we start it in the mornin'
Leave us plenty of time for lovin'
Weekend homemade hot fresh bread
Make the whole house smell like an oven
And let it all just simmer
Cook in the good juices and the greases
Then we'll sit down at the table, baby
And slowly tear it into pieces.

I want some slo-o-o-o-ow food

What's the big rush?.../Don't want no hard-hearted Hardee's, no
Muck-muck-muck-muck-donald's... I want a chef, not a clown, to make my
Food.../it can even be tofu with the right kinda sauce.../blahblahblah-

I want some slo-o-o-o-ow food
With all the love cooked in
