Abby Sale HELP ... 'Fat Songs? (51* d) Lyr Add: ROLLER DERBY QUEEN (Jim Croce) 08 Jun 08


Most Fat songs seem to be 'soft & fat' but not all. No.

Roller Derby Queen
From the album: *The 50th Anniversary Collection*
Songwriter: Croce, Jim
Label: Saja

Gonna tell you a story that you won't believe
But I fell in love last Friday evenin'
With a girl I saw on a bar room TV screen

Well, I was just gettin' ready to get my hat
When she caught my eye and I put it back
And I ordered myself couple o' more shots and beers

The night that I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen
Around and round, oh, round and round
The meanest hunk o' woman that anybody ever seen
Down in the arena

She was five foot six and two fifteen
A bleached-blonde mama with a streak of mean
She knew how to knuckle and she knew how to scuffle and fight

And the roller derby program said
That she was built like a 'fridgerator with a head
Her fans call her "Tuffy" but all her buddies called her "Spike"

You know that I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen
Around and round, oh, round and round
The meanest hunk o' woman that anybody ever seen
Down in the arena

Round and round, go round and round
Round and round, go round and round
Round and round

Well, I could not help it but to fall in love
With this heavy-duty woman I been speakin' of
Things looked kind of bad until the day she skated into my life

Well, she might be nasty, she might be fat
But I never met a person who would tell her that
She's my big blonde bomber, my heavy handed Hackensack mama

And I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen
Around and round, oh round and round
The meanest hunk o' woman that anybody ever seen
Down in the arena

Round and round, go round and round
Round and round, go round and round
Round and round

Round and round, go round and round
Round and round, go round and round
Round and round

Round and round, go round and round
Round and round, go round and round
Round and round
