Lyrics The Closer to the Bone

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
'Cos 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
Mmm closest to the bone
And sweeter is the meat
Aah let's go
Now she'd make a first class fountain pen
If she only knew how to write
Her figure's like a piece of string
Mmm 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
'Cos 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 mmm
Closest to the bone
Mmm
Sweet I got another one now
Listen here
Mmm 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
'Cos 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
