Fat Man In The Bathtub Lyrics

by Little Feat

Spotcheck Billy got down on his hands and knees
He said "Hey mama, hey let me check your oil all right?"
She said "No, no honey, not tonight.
Come back Monday, come back Tuesday, and then I might"

I said Juanita, my sweet Jaunita, what are you up to?
My Juanita
I said Jaunita, my sweet chiquita, what are you up to?
My Juanita

Don't want nobody who won't dive for dimes
Don't want no speedballs 'cause I might die trying
Throw me a line, throw me a line
'Cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues
I hear you moan, I hear you moan, I hear you moan

Billy got so sad, dejected, put on his hat and start to run
Runnin' down the street yelling at the top of his lungs
"All I want in this life of mine is some good clean fun"
"All I want in this life and time is some hit and run"

I said Juanita, my sweet Jaunita, what are you up to?
My Jaunita
I said Jaunita, my sweet chiquita, what are you up to?
My Juanita

Put my money in your meter baby so it won't run down
But you caught me in the squeeze play on the cheesy side of town
Throw me a dime, throw me a line
'Cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues
I hear you moan, I hear you moan, I hear you moan
