Spotcheck Billy got down on his hands & knees
He said "Hey momma, hey let me check your oil alright?"
She said "No, no honey, not tonite,
Comeback Monday, yeah you comeback Tuesday, then I might."

I said Juanita, my sweet Juanita, what are you up to?
My Juanita. I said Juanita, my sweet taquita,
What are you up to? My Juanita.

Well, I don't want nobody who wont dive for dimes.
Don't want no speed carball cause I die tryin.
Throw me line, throw me a dime.
Cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues.
I hear you moan, I hear you moan--moan

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

I said Juanita, my sweet Juanita, what are you up to?
My Juanita. I said Juanita, my sweet taquita,
What are you up to? My Juanita

Well I put my money in your meter baby so it wont run down,
But you got me in a squeeze play on the cheesey side of town.
Throw me line, now show me a sign.
Cause there's a fat man in the bathtub with the blues
I hear you moan, I hear you moan, I hear you moan, yea

    What does this mean? I have no idea. Is Billy the Fat Man? I don't think so. Is the Fat Man a guy in the next apartment? Is Juanita with him, doing all the moaning? I'd love for somebody to offer some insight, cause I don't have any.
