Songs about Food and Sex

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for some songs that allude to sex and food/cooking, or use food/cooking as a metaphor for sex, or talk about food in romantic terms..

Something LIKE "Come on-a My House" by Rosemary Clooney, but not that one.. but thats the kind of thing I'm looking for.

Any thoughts?

    1. I'm unfamiliar with the song that you listed but don't want, and am too lazy to go to You Tube, so I'll just give you what popped into my head. There are a few we like that might fit the bill.

      One particular one is Cornbread and Butterbeans:

      A few more that I can think of:
      Angel food, Ani DiFranco
      Alabama Song, The Doors
      One Bourbon, One Scotch, John Lee Hooker
      Marvalene's Kitchen, Malcom Holcombe (this may have been a cover
      )I Want a little Sugar in My Bowl, Nina Simone
      Ice Cream, Sarah Mclachlan
      Baker Baker, Tori Amos (depressing one, though, and becomes very discordant toward the end)
      Peaches, The Stranglers
      Homegrown Tomatoes (I like the cover by Sexfist, but other artists are going to be easier to find)
      Black Coffee (I like Ella's cover for this one . . . though she may have been the original artist, not sure)

      Good luck.

      ETA: I'm pretty sure Peaches is performed by The Stranglers, not The Strangers, and have corrected it.

        Presidents of the USA also had a single called "Peaches" - it was one of their biggest hits.

      2. My Kitchen Man. Sample lyrics:

        When I eat his doughnuts
        All I leave is the hole
        Any time he wants to
        Why, he can use my sugar bowl
        Oh, his baloney's really worth a try
        Never fails to satisfy
        I can't do without my kitchen man

        Bessie Smith's version:

        Or "Candy Shop," by 50 Cent.

        1. "Black Coffee in Bed" - Squeeze:

          Bonnie Raitt - "Blender Blues"

          "Cream" (sha boogie bop!) - Prince:

          "Angelina/Zooma Zooma" - Louis Prima:

          "Hollywood Freaks" - Beck:
