By willie james dixon
Arr. by howlin wolf (chester arthur burnett)

Some folk built like this, some folk built like that
But the way Im built, you shouldn't call me fat
Because Im built for comfort, I aint built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

I don't have no diamond, and I don't have no gold
But Ive got a lot of lovin and I want you to know
That Im built for comfort, I aint built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

Some folk built like this, some folk built like that
But the way Im built, you shouldn't call me fat
Because Im built for comfort, I aint built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

Some folk rip and roar, some folk blieve in signs
But if you want me, you got to take your time
Because Im built for comfort, I aint built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

But I got everything all the good girls need
I ... I love you baby
I ... I love you baby
But I got everything all of the good girls need

And I don't got no diamonds, don't have no gold
Got a lot of lovin to satisfy your soul
Im built for comfort, I aint built for speed
But I got everything all the good girls need

(lyrics as recorded in 1968 for the howlin wolf album)
