fat man lyrics – fats domino

{the first thing i recorded, i’m gonna play right now
it was called a fat man and i recorded it in 1949}

they call, they call me the fat man
’cause i weigh two hundred pounds
all the girls they love me
’cause i know my way around

i was standin’, i was standin’ on the corner
of rampart and c*n*l
i was watchin’, watchin’
watchin’ those people gather

i’m goin’, i’m goin’ goin’ away
and i’m goin’, goin’ to stay
’cause we be in this fast life
[incomprehensible] this goin’ away
