Brian did phone so here goes....The song was written by the late Hazel Absalom. Sung to the tune of 16 tons, these are the words she gave me but others have changed them a bit - it's the folk process! All she ever asked was that she was credited with the writing and it wasn't sung by someone who was thin!

Sixteen Stone

chorus

She weighs 16 stone and what do you get,
A whole lotta woman and that's a fact,
Take a close look and you'll agree,
There's no sharp corners on a woman like me.


You can't cuddle up to a bag of bones,
If her ribs stick out, leave her well alone
I've a big soft welcome for a man in need
I'm surely built for comfort if not for speed.

If you've seen more meat on a greasy spoon
She won't keep you warm, get rid of her soon,
So come on guys if you're down in the dumps,
Better get your arms around a woman that's plump.

The magazines say be skin and bone
But big girls never have to sleep alone,
We don't disappear when we turn on our side
And there's plenty of suspension for a bumpy ride!

If you see me coming, better step aside,
A lot of men didn't, a lot of men died,
Some give you desire, others a thrill
And if the tall ones don't get you, This short one will!


If you ever had the pleasure of seeing Steel Bunny perform it... you would never have forgotten the occasion!!!

Words have been posted in the forum previously: BS: folk fashion (2nd post by Liz The Squeak in the thread). (There are also 2 Lyr Req threads for the song, though the lyrics are in neither! One of them does have a link to the Folk Fashion thread however).
