INTRO

Little lean woman can't draw my pay, she haven't got a thing to drive my blues away
Little lean woman, sure can't draw my pay
'Cause she haven't got nothin' to drive my blues away

When I come home at night, you know I wants to play, but I ain't got nothin' drive my blues away
I said, little lean woman, stay 'way from my door (Spoken: Why?)
I got a big fat woman and I can't use little lean woman no more (Spoken: Play it for me now!)

SOLO

I got a big fat woman, meat shakin' on her bones, every time she shakes some lean woman lose her home
I says, little lean woman, stay 'way from my door
I got a big fat woman and I can't use little lean woman no more

When I was on my way to school, met a big fat woman made me lose my mama's rule
I said, little lean woman, stay 'way from my door
I got a big fat woman and I can't use little lean woman no more ( Spoken: Play it for me now! Play it 'til my rider comes!)

SOLO

Now, if that's your woman, you better pin her to your side, pulls up her thumb I'm gwonna sure let her ride
I said, little lean woman, stay 'way from my door
I got a big fat woman and I can't use little lean woman no more
