Some like 'em fat and some like em tall
Some like 'em short
Skinny legs and all
I like 'em tall

You know they draw a crowd!

There was a time when I was all alone
I had a secret thought I was gone
Somebody done me!
Said now I see

To stay ahead of me
And when I get burndt ha! I use some salve
And when I want some lovin'

Step in a small ring
And jump back baby!

Sometime sometime I'm feelin' low
Sometime I'm feelin' low

Talkin about Maceo!
