You're My Meat

Photograph of Louis Jordan.

    (Tolbert)

Transcribed from Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five, vocal by Louis Jordan, recorded November 14, 1939.
From Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five, 1934-1940; The Chronogical Classics, 636.

Outside in and inside out,
You're my meat,
Ah, you're fat and forty,
But, lordy, you're my meat!

From your feet to your head you knock me dead,
You're my meat!
I got you covered,
But baby, you're my meat!

In the days of old when knights were bold,
They were pious and modest I'm told,
Don't you see
That couldn't be me,
I'd have to talk about your yams and your big fat hams!

It excites me so because I know
You're my meat!
Fat and forty,
But lordy, you're my meat!
You're fat and forty,
But lordy, you're my meat!

You're fat and forty,
But lordy, you're my meat!
You're fat and forty,
But lordy, lordy, you're my meat!
