Tired slippin' and slidin' with a long tall Sally
Peekin' and a hidin', duckin' back in the alley
Don't wanna rip it up, don't wanna dance with Annie
I've got a brand new lover name is Short Fat Fannie

One day while I was visiting at Heart Break Hotel
That's where I met Fannie and she sure looked swell
I told her that I loved her and I'd never leave
She put her arms around me, gave me fever

She's my tutti fruiti, I love the child so
She watch me like a hound dog everywhere I go
Whenever I'm around her I'm on my p's and q's
She might step on my blue suede shoes

Well at a honky tonk party just the other night
Fannie got jealous and she started a fight
Because I was dancing with Mary Lou
I had to call Jim Dandy to the rescue 

Short Fat Fannie she's my hearts desire
Short Fat Fannie sets my soul on fire
On Monday we were married on Blueberry Hill
Now we're so happy and I love her still

She's my favorite tutti fruiti, and I love the child so
She watch me like a hound dog everywhere I go
Whenever I'm around her I'm on my p's and q's
'Cause she might step on my blue suede shoes

Well at a honky tonk party just the other night
Fannie got jealous and she started a fight
Because I was dancing with Mary Lou
I had to call Jim Dandy to the rescue 

Short Fat Fannie is my hearts desire
Got the kind of loving sets my soul on fire
Short Fat Fannie, well I love her so
I'll never let Short Fat Fannie go
