Two Ton Tessie

Ray Charles

Down in Nashville, Tennessee
There's a sight you oughta see
But as long as you can't get down there
I'll tell you all, so listen to me

There's a girl named Tessie Town
And she weighs about four hundred pounds
She's fat and fair, but she don't care
'Cause the boys all hang around

They call her Two Ton Tessie from Tennessee
Holds ten sweeties up on her knee
When she does, all the fun begins
When they play tennis on her double-chin

They all answer to her demands
And bring her tires for wedding bands
Well, I just got a little inside tip
They promised her a nightclub on her hip
Yeah, Two Ton Tessie from Nashville, Tennessee

Every time she struts around
She puts on an extra pound Is that right
But it doesn't seem to worry her
The weight is making Tessie reknowned

Is a-trying to reduce
And she's got a good excuse
Fat and fair, but she don't care
'Cause the boys all hang around

They call her Two Ton Tessie from Tennessee
Goes in swimming up to her knee
Once she went in to her neck
The tide rose up and made the town a wreck

She was hit on the railroad track
Engines hit her and bounced right back
Her appendix had to come out fast
They couldn't operate, so they had to blast
On Two Ton Tessie from Nashville, Tennessee

On a streetcar I heard 'em say
Six men gave her a seat one day
All the baseball players have stopped their gym
They run around Tessie just to stay in trim
Two ton Tessie from Knoxville, I mean a-Memphis
Oh-ah, Nashville, Tennessee

A that's right
