​Hominy Grove

This song is by Van Dyke Parks and appears on the album Jump! (1984).


Off the wall wallflower
Now the dance has begun
It's our shining hour till all our dancin' is done
Mammy Whammy Jammy cookin' up on a stove
For me and my Buttercup
Things have been lookin' up in Hominy Grove.
Sweet Hominy!
You the wild wild flower
That my garden has grown
How I in your power
And you a rake on you own!
Hottentot Hot Toddy Cinnamon and a clove
For lovin' our lovin' cup
Things have been lookin' up
In Hominy Grove.
Sweet Hominy!
Inst. -
My whole heart's affection
Would I lay at your feet
Why one man's confection could be another man's sweet?
Weave in my direction When the web has been woven
Stick us together like
Birds of a feather.
Down in Hominy Grove.
Sweet Hominy!
