My lean baby - tall and thinFive feet seven - of bones and skinBut when she tells me maybe she loves meI feel as mellow as a fellow can beShe’s so skinny - she’s so drawnWhen she stands sideways - you (would) think (that) she’s goneBut when she calls me: baby - I feel fineTo think she’s frantically, romantically mineShe’s slender, but she’s tenderShe makes my heart surrenderAnd every night, when I hold her tightThe feeling is nice - my arms can go around twiceMy lean baby - she’s so slimA broomstick’s wider - but not as trimAnd when she starts to kiss me - then I knowI love her so, I’ll never, ever, let her goMy lean baby - strange to seeAnd all that nothing - it belongs to meAnd though she may be scrawny - she’s okBecause I wouldn’t want her any other wayShe’s so skinny - she’s so drawnWhen she stands sideways - you (would) think (that) she’s goneBut when she calls me: baby - I feel fineTo think she’s frantically, romantically mineI chased her - and I caught herThen a diamond ring - I bought her(hey) the diamonds shine - the ring is so fineBut here is the twist - she wears it right on her wristMy lean baby - she’s so slimA broomstick’s wider - but not as trimAnd when she starts to kiss me - then I knowI love her so, I’ll never, ever, let her goMy lean baby - tall and thin...(do-do-do-do-do,...)
