(Instrumental & piano into)

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' those 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

(Instrumental & piano)

I'm goin', I'm goin', goin' away
And I'm goin', goin' to stay
They call, they call me the fat man
ґCause I weight two hundred pounds
All the girls they love me
ґCause I know my way around

I was standinґ, I was standinґ on the corner
Of Rampart and Canal
I was watchinґ, watchinґ
Watchinґ 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

Iґm goinґ, Iґm goinґ goinґ away
And Iґm goinґ, goinґ to stay
'Cause women and fast life
Train carrying this soul away.
