Skin and Bone

Ray Davies, released on Muswell Hillbillies, © Davray Music Ltd. 1971

.

Fat Flabby Annie was incredibly big

She weighed just about sixteen stone

And then a fake dietician went and put her on a diet

Now she looks like skin and bone.

Do the meditation and yoga

And she's thrown away the good food guide

And she's given up the alcohol and pizzas

And the pies and now she looks as if she's ready to die,

You can't see her walk by.

.

Don't eat no mashed potatoes,

Don't eat no buttered scones

Stay away from carbohydrates

You're gonna look like skin and bone.

.

Living on the edge of starvation

And she says she's got no appetite

And her father and her mother

And her sisters and her brothers

Couldn't see her when she walked by

She looked like skin and bone.

.

Don't eat no mashed potatoes,

Don't eat no buttered scones

Stay away from carbohydrates

You're gonna look like skin and bone.

.

She used to be so cuddly,

She used to be so fat,

But oh what a sin cos she's oh so thin

That she lost all the friends that she had,

She looks like skin and bone

.

If you look flabby

And you feel overweight,

And you wanna lose a couple of stone,

Take a crash course diet do your daily exercises

And you'll look like skin and bone.

.

Come on rattle them bones,

Put your hands up to the ceiling,

Bend your hips and touch your toes,

Do your daily exercises,

You're gonna look like skin and bone,

.

Don't eat no mashed potatoes, etc.
