The Fat Man
Fats Domino Lyrics


They call, they call me the fat man
'Cause I weight two hundred pounds
All the girls they love me
'Cause I know my way around

I was standin', I was standin' on the corner
Of Rampart and Canal
I was watchin', watchin'
Watchin' all these creole gals

Wah wah wah, wah wah
Wah wah waah, wah wah wah
Wah wah waah, wah wah wah
Wah wah wah

Wah waah wah
Wah wah wah, wah wah wah
Wah wah wah, wah wah wah
Wah wah wah

I'm goin', I'm goin' goin' away
And I'm goin', goin' to stay
'Cause women and a bad life
They're carrying this soul away

Primera Calle de la Soledad

They call, they call me the fat man
'Cause I weight two hundred pounds
All the girls they love me
'Cause I know my way around
I was standin', I was standin' on the corner
Of Rampart and Canal
I was watchin', watchin'
Watchin' all these creole gals
Wah wah wah, wah wah
Wah wah waah, wah wah wah
Wah wah waah, wah wah wah
Wah wah wah
Wah waaa-ah wah
Wah wah wah, wah wah wah
Wah wah wah, wah wah wah
Wah wah wah
I'm goin', I'm goin' goin' away
And I'm goin', goin' to stay
'Cause women and a bad life
They're carrying this soul away.

Often overlooked, but being released in 1949, this is in fact one of the earliest, if not the first, rock and roll songs.

plaidman67

@Mico Veliki Well, Hell...I stand corrected. That is VERY COOL information and I appreciate learning about it! Thanks! The record company shouldn't have given them credit for a song they didn't write...
