Short Fat Fannie - Larry Williams

Short Fat Fannie

Larry Williams

(Larry Williams, Specialty 608, 1957)

Tired of slippin' an a slidin' with
Long Tall Sally
Peepin' and a-hidin' duckin' back in the alley
Don't wanna Rip It Up
Don't wanna dance with Annie
I got a brand new lover
Named "Short Fat Fannie"

One day while I was busy
In the Heartbreak Hotel
That's where I met Fannie
And she sure looked swell
I told her that I loved her
I'd never leave her
She put her arms around me
Gave me fever

She's my Tutti-Fruitti
I love the child so
She watch me like a Hound Dog
Everywhere I go
Whenever I'm around
I'm on my p's and q's
She might step on my Blue Suede Shoes

Well at a honky-tonk party
Just the other night
Fannie got jealous and she started a fight
Because I was dancin' with Mary Lou
I had to call Jim Dandy to the rescue

Short Fat Fannie she's my heart's desire
Short Fat Fannie sets my soul on fire
On Monday we were married on Blueberry Hill
Now we're so happy and I love her still

She's my big bad Tutti-Frutti
And I love the child so
She watch me like a Hound Dog
Everywhere I go
Whenever I'm around I'm on my p's an q's
She might step on my Blue Suede Shoes

Well at a honky-tonk party
Just the other night
Fannie got jealous and she started a fight
Because I was dancing with Mary Lou
I had to call Jim Dandy to the rescue

Short Fat Fannie is my heart's desire
Got the kind of lovin'
Sets my soul on fire
Short Fat Fannie well I love her so
I'll never let Short Fat Fannie Go
