The Kinks

The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964. Categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country. Ray Davies (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Dave Davies (lead guitar, vocals) remained members throughout the group's 32-year run.

Fat Flabby Annie was incredibly big 
She weighed just about sixteen stone 
And then a fake dietitian went and put her on a diet 
Now she looks like skin and bone. 
Do the meditation and yoga 
And she's thrown away the good food guide 
And she's given up the alcohol and pizzas 
And the pies and now she looks as if she's ready to die, 
You can't see her walk by. 

Don't eat no mashed potatoes, 
Don't eat no buttered scones 
Stay away from carbohydrates 
You're gonna look like skin and bone. 

Living on the edge of starvation 
And she says she's got no appetite 
And her father and her mother 
And her sisters and her brothers 
Couldn't see her when she walked by 
She looked like skin and bone. 

Don't eat no mashed potatoes, 
Don't eat no buttered scones 
Stay away from carbohydrates 
You're gonna look like skin and bone. 

She used to be so cuddly, 
She used to be so fat, 
But oh what a sin 'cause she's oh so thin 
That she lost all the friends that she had, 
She looks like skin and bone 

If you look flabby 
And you feel overweight, 
And you want to lose a couple of stone, 
Take a crash course diet do your daily exercises 
And you'll look like skin and bone. 

Come on rattle them bones, 
Put your hands up to the ceiling, 
Bend your hips and touch your toes, 
Do your daily exercises, 
You're gonna look like skin and bone, 

Don't eat no mashed potatoes, etc.
