-------------------------------------------------
 
My lean baby, tall and thin,
5 feet 7 of bones and skin
But when she tells me, baby, she loves me
I feel as mellow as a fellow can be.
 
She's so skinny, she's so drawn,
When she stands sideways you'd think she's gone
But when she calls me baby, I feel fine
To think she's frantically, romantically mine.
 
She's slender, but she's tender.
She makes my heart surrender.
And ever night when I hold her tight,
The feelin' is nice  - my arms can go around twice
 
My lean baby she's so slim
A broomstick's wider but not as trim
And when she starts to kiss me
Then I know I love her so, I'll never ever let her go.
 
No - my lean baby, strange to see
And all that nothin' it belongs to me.
And though she may be scrawny she's OK
Because I wouldn't want her any other way.
 
Man, she's so skinny, she's so drawn,
When she stands sideways you would think that she's gone
But when she calls me baby, I feel fine
To think she's frantically, romantically mine.
 
I chased her and I caught her.
Then a diamond ring I brought her.
Hey, the diamond shines, the ring is so fine,
but here is a twist - she wears it right on her wrist.
 
My lean baby she's so slim
A broomstick's wider but not as trim
And when she starts to kiss me
Then I know I love her so, I'll never ever let her go.
 
My lean baby, tall and thin
Do-do-do-do do do-do, do-do-do
(Fade out)
