Lean Baby Submit Correct Lyrics

My lean baby, tall and thin
Five feet seven, of bones and skin
But when she tells me maybe 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 would think that 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 every night, when I hold her tight
The feeling 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

My lean baby, strange to see
And all that nothing, it belongs to me
And though she may be scrawny, she's okay
Because I wouldn't want her any other way

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 bought her
Hey, the diamonds shine, the ring is so fine
But here is the 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
