Inükshük Lyr Req: So Round So Firm So Fully Packed (Travis) (37) Lyr Add: FAT GAL (Johnny Bond) 07 Apr 04


With respect to Lonesome EJs earlier post, I'm pretty sure that Merle Travis didn't write "That's What I Like About That Fat Gal of Mine" Be that as it may, it's sure to get quite a reaction. We used to do it in medley with Queen's "Fat Bottom Girl" but we have to be very careful these days. Personally I think they are both beautiful love songs.

FAT GAL
Johnny Bond

She keeps me warm in the winter, shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine;
And when I see my landlord she's got so much behind that I can hide behind
You don't pay rent when your time is spent like mine.
She's so sweet with the softest heart. She's pretty soft around her other parts;
And at night when I lay me down, I don't need a pillow when she's around
Warm in the winter; shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.

When she's laughing there's so much of her to have a real good time
I tell all my jokes to that fat gal of mine
She's never fickle; you'd better sign right on the dotted line
The first chance you get with a good fat gal like mine.
Hard luck talk don't bother me; I'm as happy as a honey bee;
If things get tough and times get hard I could render that gal and sell the lard
Warm in the winter; shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.

She's a bargain, for the same low price look at all you get
Well I got a lot when I got that gal of mine
And when I'm working she sits at home on her diamonette
I've got no troubles with that fat gal of mine
She's my shelter, in times of storm I helter skelter right under her arm.
She's a beauty if you look at her face and you'd better not look any other place.
Warm in the winter; shady in the summer time
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.
