The Beatles – Short Fat Fannie Song Lyrics

About The Beatles: The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as “Beatlemania”, but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era’s sociocultural revolutions.

Lyrics:

Tired slippin’ and slidin’ with a long tall Sally
Peekin’ and a hidin’, duckin’ back in the alley
Don’t wanna rip it up, don’t wanna dance with Annie
I’ve got a brand new lover name is Short Fat Fannie

One day while I was visiting at Heart Break Hotel
That’s where I met Fannie and she sure looked swell
I told her that I loved her and I’d never leave
She put her arms around me, gave me fever

She’s my tutti fruiti, I love the child so
She watch me like a hound dog everywhere I go
Whenever I’m around her 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 dancing with Mary Lou
I had to call Jim Dandy to the rescue

Short Fat Fannie she’s my hearts 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 favorite tutti fruiti, and I love the child so
She watch me like a hound dog everywhere I go
Whenever I’m around her I’m on my p’s and q’s
‘Cause 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 hearts desire
Got the kind of loving sets my soul on fire
Short Fat Fannie, well I love her so
I’ll never let Short Fat Fannie go
