  • Oh, oh.
    Oh, baby.
    I love cookin' with honey.
    I love to make you feel funny.
    I love the way you do.
    I want, I want it with you, yeah.
    Homemade love, Jelly roll love.
    Homemade love.


    I need a jelly roll sweetie.
    Now, spread it oh spread it on me, babe.
    Feels so good, on the top.
    Spread it around, baby, 'til I drop ya'.
    Homemade love, hot jelly roll love.
    Homemade love.

    Oh, baby, oh baby,
    I know you love it.
    Homemade love, oh, baby.
    I know you love it.
    So love it.

    Oh, homemade love, hot jelly roll love.
    Homemade love.
    Homemade love, hot jelly roll love.
    Homemade love.
    Oh, baby, baby, baby
    Homemade love, hot jelly roll love.
    Homemade love.

    Oh, smokin',
    Oh, baby, you're burnin'
    Oh, baby, it's boilin', ah. Writer/s: NEAL JOSEPH SCHON, STEPHEN RAY PERRY, STEVE SMITH

  • Lucille from UsaAnwyn, who cares. Its a good song. No 'ick' factor. Go take a nap.
  • Samantha from ItalyCan't find any of these groupies related story about Journey, I think it only speculations...
  • Anwyn from Adelaide, Australia"Jellyroll" apparently refers to very young, probably under the age of consent, groupies and fans. So there's a certain amount of 'ick' factor from today's perspective, when the 70s fashion of rock stars getting into young groupies isn't seen as an acceptable thing any more. Given that his penchant for underage girls was supposedly the reason Ainsley Dunbar was asked to leave, after one close call too many with concerned parents calling the cops (or, according to another story, it was the underage daughter of a town sheriff), this song raises some really uncomfortable speculations.
