BIG FAT MAMAS ARE BACK IN STYLE AGAIN

by A. Clawson, Lucius "Lucky" Millinder, and T. Pope


Listen, sister
You should wear a smile
Jump for joy just like a child
'Cause big fat mamas are back in style

Listen, brother
It's all over that dial
Hear that crowd, they're going wild
'Cause big fat mamas are back in style

     You need a big fat mama
     And boys you can't go wrong
     A big fat mama
     To rule your home sweet home

Listen, mama
You gotta keep that double chin
'Cause the big fat mamas and the little fat mamas
Are back in style again
