Well, I don't care to eat out in smart restaurants.
I was down at the old Bengal, having telephoned a treat,
She looked good enough to eat. (And I mean eat.)
She looked like a tall thin girl.
My face turned chilli red.
But you can carry me off to bed. (And I mean bed.)
She moved like a tall thin girl.
And maybe I can stretch for it.
I may not be a fat man and I'm not exactly small
This girl was tall. (And I mean tall.)

Don't play no tambourine
If you know just what I mean.
Stands six foot three in his underwear;
If this good lady's got a little sister 'bout the same size as me.
She looked like a tall thin girl.
Well, maybe I can stretch for it?
Or do I have to go down for it?
