"Barbecue" (or "Bar-B-Que") is a song by the Frogtown Hollow Jubilee Jugband in Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. It is rehearsed by Emmet and friends at their treehouse for the talent show. After Yancy Woodchuck stole the song, they had to perform "Brothers" instead.

Lyrics

[Intro]

Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: When you meet somebody that don't like soul food
They still got a soul
And it don't mean that you got no rhythm
If you don't like rock 'n roll

But if your tastes are like mine, you like cider not wine
And your very favorite thing to do
Wendell: Is get a pretty girl dancin' to jug band music
Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: And a mess of mama's barbecue

All: Barbecue
Emmet: Lifts my spirit
Emmet, Charlie: I swear that it never fails
And the sauce mama makes just stays there forever
If you dare to get it under your nails

Emmet: Well you
Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: May be poor with a wolf at your door
Wendell: But money isn't everything
Emmet, Charlie: You still got the sun and a river full of fun
And you'll always have a song to sing

Harvey, Charlie: Ooh...
Emmet: So get the frown off your face, we're gonna replace it
With a grin and a dream come true
Wendell: With a prurty girl dancin' to jug band music
Emmet, Charlie: And a mess of mama's barbecue

[Kazoo solo]

All: Barbecue
Emmet: Lifts my spirit
Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: I swear that it never fails
And the sauce mama makes just stays there forever
If you dare to get it under your nails

Emmet: So get the
Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: Frown off your face, we're gonna replace it
With a grin and a dream come true
Wendell: With a prurty girl dancin' to jug band music
Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: And a mess of mama's barbecue
Wendell: That's a prurty girl dancin' to jug band music
Emmet, Harvey, Charlie: And a mess of mama's barbe
Mess of mama's barbe
All: Mess of mama's barbecue

Wendell: A mess of mama's barbecue
