LEAN BABY Billy May / Roy Alfred 1953 as rec by Frank Sinatra w Billy May & his Orch April 4th 1953 Los Angeles (scat) My lean baby, tall and thin, Five feet seven of bones and skin, But when she tells me, baby, she loves me, I feel as mellow as a fellow can be! She's so skinny, she's so drawn, When she stands sideways you think she's gone! But when she call me "baby", I feel fine To think that sahe's frantically romantically mine! She's slender, But she's tender, She makes my heart surrender! And every night, When I hold her tight, The feelin' is nice, My arms can go around twice! My lean baby, she's so slim, A broomstick's wider, but not as trim! And when she starts to kiss me, then I know I love her so, I'll never let her go, no! My lean baby, strange to see, And all that nothin', it belongs to me! And though she may be scrawny, she's okay, Because I wouldn't want her any other way! Man, she's so skinny, she's so drawn, When she stands sideways you think she's gone! But when she call me "baby", I feel fine To think that sahe's frantically romantically mine! I chased her And I caught her, Then a diamond ring I bought her; Hey, the diamonds shine, The ring is so fine, But here is a twist, She wears it right on her wrist! My lean baby, she's so slim, A broomstick's wider, but not as trim! And when she starts to kiss me, then I know I love her so, I'll never let her go! My lean baby, tall and thin, (scat)...
