THE CLOSER TO THE BONE (Louis Jones) Louis Prima - 1958 Also recorded by: Sam Butera & The Wildest Closest to the bone Sweeter is the meat Last slice of Virginia ham Is the best that you can eat Don't talk about my baby She's slender but she's sweet Closest to the bone And sweeter is the meat Now she'd make a good thermometer If she drank a glass of wine She's built just like a garter snake She climbs up like a vine My friends tell me I'm a fool To love a girl like that Here's the reason I like 'em slim Instead of big and fat 'Cause.....Closest to the bone Sweeter is the meat Last slice of Virginia ham Is the best that you can eat Now don't talk about my baby She's slender but she's sweet Umm, closest to the bone And sweeter is the meat Let's go...... (Saxophone Solo) Yeah, let's go..... Yeah, boy..... Attaboy..... One more, one more..... One more, one more..... Yeah, boy..... In the moonlight..... Yeah, closest to the bone, yeah..... Ahh, look out now..... (Trumpet Solo) Now she'd make a first class fountain pen If she only knew how to write Her figure's like a piece of string Umm, she rolls up every night Everybody thinks that I'm a nut To love this lovely worm Boy there's one reason I like 'em slim Instead of round and firm 'Cause........Closest to the bone Sweeter is the meat Last slice of Virginia ham Is the best that you can eat Now don'cha talk about my baby She's slender but she's sweet, umm Closest to the bone Umm, swee......I got another one now, listen here..... Umm, she'd make a fine piccolo If she only stayed on key Boy she's shaped like a rubber band And she loves to snap at me Everybody thinks I'm insane To overlook her faults But here's the reason I like 'em skinny Instead of full of schmaltz 'Cause.....Closest to the bone Sweeter is the meat Last slice of Virginia ham Is the best that you can eat Don't talk about my baby She's slender but she's sweet And it's closest to the bone And sweeter is the meat (Transcribed by Cooks, & Mel Priddle - July 2004)
