"She's warm in the wintertime, and shady when it's hot."
This is a song about a fellow's large girlfriend. Anyone got the rest of the lyrics?

That's why I love that fat gal o' mine.

Fat Gal, by Merle Travis

She keeps me warm in the Winter,
Chilly in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!

And when I see my landlord,
There's so much of her to hide behind;
You wouldn't pay rent if your time was spent like mine!

Now she's so sweet with the softest heart;
She's pretty soft around other parts,
And at night when I lay me down,
I don't need a piller when she's around.

Warm in the Winter,
Shady in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!

Now when she's tickled,
So much of her has the biggest time;
I tell all my jokes to that fat gal of mine.

She's never fickle;
You better put your name on the dotted line,
First time you meet with with a big fat gal like mine!

This hard-time talk don't trouble me;
I keep as happy as a honeybee;
If things get rough and times get hard,
I'll render my gal and sell the lard.

Warm in the Winter,
Shady in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!

Now she's my shelter in the time of storm;
I helter-skelter right under her arm.
She's a beauty if you look at her face,
And you shouldn't be a-lookin' any other place!

Look for record by Steve James (Cicchetti). He has recorded a - um, bariant? - of this song. There's a verse about having to keep a piece of chalk when he starts hugging her; he marks how far he reached and moves to the mark and starts over -- and once he met a guy doing the same thing coming around from the other side!! Fun song. Tw
